The Stryker Board of Education met in regular session on Monday April 15.
Superintendant Nate Johnson gave the board an update on the progress of the athletic complex just south of town. The all-weather surface has not been laid yet, but with the weather temperatures getting closer to having consistent 50 degree days, it won’t be long.
The first Jr High track meet has been held at the new complex, but there is still more work to be done as Johnson updates the board.
“Partitions in the bathrooms at the concession stand, a little more concrete work for the sleeves at the discus and long jump, the complex sign, and seating of course. We’re moving right along” states Johnson.
Donations were accepted by the Stryker Athletic Boosters: $5,000 to purchase track equipment and SPSP: $2,000 to the archery fund
