Wisconsin high school unveils $662,000 locker room renovations

It's been said that a town with money is a little like a mule with a spinning wheel: No one knows how he got it, and danged if he knows how to use it.

But when Arrowhead High School in Hartland, Wisc., came into a $275,000 donation, the school knew exactly what it wanted to build.

The donor eventually provided a total of $361,224 to totally renovate the boys and girls basketball locker rooms, as well as the boys and girls team rooms, a media room and football storage space and 25 percent of the money needed to revamp the heating and ventilation system.

The school provided $224,226 to complete the girls and boys toilet and shower room renovations, as well as the remaining money needed for the heating and ventilation repairs, some $56,500.
The total cost of the renovations came to $662,602, according to Superintendent Craig Jefson.

Some members of the community questioned the appropriateness of spending such a large sum of money on the facility.
For the athletes who will use the facility, however, such a drastic overhaul was no doubt long overdue.
