VLK Architects Celebrates Ribbon Cutting of Keller ISD’s New Central High School Indoor Facility
VLK Architects joined Keller ISD to celebrate the ribbon cutting of the Central High School Indoor Extra-Curricular Program Facility. The ceremony included Central High School students from various extra-curricular programs along with district staff, community members, and the design and construction teams.
This indoor facility was designed to support all outdoor extra-curricular program practice needs regardless of weather issues. The space will serve student groups of all ages from across Central’s feeder pattern. While student athletes and performers will most frequently use the new space for year-round practice, younger students will have the opportunity for a variety of activities such as field days and science projects.
“In the feeder pattern we place a strong emphasis on creating a sense of community and connection to the high school,” said Dr. Kevin Hood, Area Superintendent for the Central High School Feeder Pattern. “I’m excited for the opportunities here not only for our high school students, but also the potential for sharing across the feeder pattern.”
This facility includes a full-length football field for all athletic and fine arts programs as well as batting cages that drop from the ceiling. This is the first of four indoor multi-purpose facilities designed by VLK to open in Keller ISD. When construction is complete, each high school will have its own indoor facility providing increased opportunities for students across the district.
“VLK Architects is excited to celebrate the opening of this multi-purpose facility serving the students of Central High School and associated feeder schools,” said Lloyd Condon, Senior Associate | Project Director at VLK Architects. “VLK is honored in our continued relationship with Keller ISD in their commitment to serve all students from all communities within the district.”
