D.C. Everest school leaders open new health center
SCHOFIELD (WAOW) -
D.C. Everest school leaders unveiled a nearly $2 million health and wellness center Thursday.
The new center at the Greenheck Field House, includes new workout equipment and space for fitness classes.
School leaders said the project started about a year ago and received a lot of funding from the community.
Leaders said they hope the new facilities will bring the community closer together.
"We really try to attract our own students. This will be available free of charge to D.C. Everest students and we really feel that academics are a most important priority, but so is health and wellness and this really helps us achieve that mission," said D.C. Everest School Superintendent, Kristine Gilmore.
School leaders said they have already signed up 20 new memberships and hope to reach 100 by the end of June.
