There are lots of improvements going on at the Winchester Schools.
New roofs are being planned for the flat parts of high school roof and the grade school, thanks to a federal grant obtained by the district.
Kerr’s Court, a project named for a Winchester Grade School student, Kerr Ballard, killed in a 4-wheeler accident last year, is also ongoing.
“We are working on an outdoor basketball court, a playground and an outdoor classroom,” Denny Vortman, principal at WHS, said. “We received $10,000 from DOT Foods and donations from the community to pay for the project.
New fencing, new bleachers, a new back stop and other improvements are all part of a $120,000, three-year project by the Cougar Boosters. The work is nearly finished and should be ready for next season’s baseball action.
“We hope to sometime in the future, add lights,” Vortman said. “We are hoping for some grants to be able to do that.”
