Students Help with new Rec Center

Abby Rhodes, a Senior Class Representative, sits pondering the future of this city. “I hope that in 10 years the city will see the rec center as an asset to the community and it will be busy and there will be classes there with people just going and hanging out,” she said.

Have you ever wanted a place where you could swim and then ice skate and finish off with a nice cup of hot cocoa? The new Indoor Recreation and Aquatics Center under consideration by the city of West Lafayette offers just this opportunity. Janet Fawley, the Parks and Recreation Superintendent, as well as Chris Foley, the Recreation Director, and a representative from the architectural firm Perkins+Will came to West Side on Tuesday, December 12, to talk with a few juniors and seniors on student council to hear our thoughts on what would work best in a possible rec center. Emma Dunford (12), Abby Rhodes (12), Jacob Richardson (12), and Parker Smith (11) provided some comments on the matter.
