Rowland High School Aquatics Center Community Update Meeting
On August 27, 2013, a meeting was held at Rowland High School in the Hideout to update the community on the construction timeline of the new Rowland High School Aquatics Center. Rowland High School Principal Mitch Brunyer greeted the more than 80 guests in attendance and introduced Superintendent Ruben Frutos. The architect team from Adolph Ziemba AIA & Associates presented to the audience a slide show featuring architectural renderings of the Aquatics Center Project. Poster boards featuring the pictures of the planned new Aquatics Facility were also on display for the audience. The team highlighted the many facility features including:
