Citrus College To Dedicate New Field House
by Stacy Armstrong

 

GLENDORA - Citrus College will soon be celebrating the opening of one of its newest facilities.

 

Community members are invited to attend the formal dedication of the college’s new Field House on Tuesday, November 17 at 3:00 p.m.

 

“This new facility is not only an important addition to Citrus College, but it has positive implications for our local communities,” said Paula Green, Citrus College Director of Communications.  “Several local high schools utilize our facilities as their home athletic fields and for their graduation ceremonies.   The college also hosts a variety of other public events at our stadium.”

 

The new Field House provides modern locker rooms, a classroom, faculty offices, and work space to accommodate the needs of our student population.  A new concession stand was also part of the building project.

 

In addition to these amenities, five of the college’s athletic teams will also be housed in the Field House.  These include football, track, cross country, baseball and soccer.

 

Perhaps one of the most attractive features of the new building is a ceramic tile wall depicting students playing sports.  This special feature was designed and built by Citrus College ceramics students, under the direction of art instructor Mike Hillman.

 

“The Field House and its accompanying concession stand contribute to an attractive environment that is conducive to both instruction and inter-collegiate athletics,” Green said.

 

The dedication ceremony will provide visitors with the opportunity to tour the facilities.  It will also include the introduction of special guests, an overview of the building and its purpose, and refreshments.
