Exciting progress at La Follette
Outside the building, the turf crew is putting the finishing touches on the new turf field at Lussier Stadium. The track has been paved and bleachers are getting installed on the east end of the field. Meanwhile, the concrete foundations for the courtyard expansion were poured and are ready to be backfilled. When complete, the expanded corridors will improve building circulation.
