Frankfort High School gym plans postponed

SHORT GAP, W.Va. — A presentation to Mineral County Board of Education members on proposed plans for an extended auxiliary gym at Frankfort High School was postponed so that estimated project costs could be calculated, according to Kevin Shupe,  the high school’s athletic director.

The proposal will be discussed at a future board meeting, most likely before the end of March, said Kevin Watson, board president.

“We want to make sure we have the proper figures and be as close to possible with our estimation,” said Shupe.

The extension will provide additional practice space for student athletes and may in the future be turned into a main gym, according to Shupe.

“Our floor space is small,” said Shupe.

“Just  (Thursday), the sectional officials had the cheerleaders leave the floor for safety reasons because they were too close to the court,” said Shupe.

Construction on the extension will likely begin after the board approves the proposal, according to Shupe.

Funding for the project will come from the school budget and the boosters.

“Hopefully, the board can provide some and give us a line of credit for the rest,” said Shupe.

Principal Joe Riley, Shupe and Leo Day, booster president, were slated to make the presentation at the board meeting Tuesday.

The group, including Watson and a representative from Chaney Architects, met Feb. 22 to discuss the proposed plans.
