Kirkwood School District to Build New Swimming Pool Complex
Christner was recently selected as design architect for the new Walker Natatorium at Kirkwood High School. A committee of district staff, board members, and trustees of the Earl E. and Myrtle E. Walker Foundation, which provided the $10 million grant for the facility, interviewed four firms for the job. The new natatorium will mean the high school's water polo team and swim and dive teams will now have a facility in which to train and compete. Water safety classes will also become part of the physical education curriculum. Construction will start this summer and is scheduled to be completed by the start of the 2015–2016 school year.
