Super Chat

The February edition of the "Super Chat" podcast is now online at www.southwestschools.org/podcast.

In this episode, Athletic Director Mark Meibers talks about some exciting times in Harrison Wildcats Athletics.  Mark details the process behind the Bengals/NFL Turf Grant, and the BP Gas fundraiser sponsored by Triumph Energy.  Work on the new turf practice fields will begin this spring, followed by the game field.  The entire athletic facilities renovation project is being funded entirely through private donations.  No tax dollars are being utilized.

Assistant Superintendent Corinne Hayes explains the new "Purple Star" designation awarded to William Henry Harrison High School.  The Purple Star Award is bestowed by the Ohio Department of Education and recognizes schools who provide exceptional support to students of military families.

Finally, Superintendent John Hamstra provides the monthly update on the facilities project.  The project is on schedule and on budget.  Gravel laydown is complete, underground utility installation is progress, as are the footers.  Elevator pits have been excavated, and masons have currently mobilized on that piece.  Be sure to follow Mr. Hamstra on Twitter @SLSDSuper for the very latest highlights from throughout the district.
