Reynolds High School unveils new gym as school year begins
Portland Business Journal, Aug 27, 2014
Reynolds High School is unveiling its newly renovated gymnasium, which it hopes will help staff and students move forward after the tragic shooting on June 10 which left the shooter and a 14-year-old freshman dead and a physical education teacher injured.
Today, the school at 1698 S.E. Cherry Park Road in Troutdale, will offer public tours of the gymnasium. The improvements are about 95 percent complete and the school says they will be finished before the new semester starts next Thursday.
The district was planning a renovation of the locker rooms with Oh Planning and Design Architecture before shooting in June. But local businesses donated funds, labor and materials to produce a “much more comprehensive and transformative” renovation that will give students a safe place to exercise.
