At Monday’s USD 428 School Board meeting, the board heard from Horst, Terrill, and Karst Architectural Firm as they shared several different options for the design of the new Great Bend Middle School Gymnasium and multipurpose room. The multipurpose room could be used as a wrestling room, or when needed, a storm shelter for the school. Out of all the options the school board heard, HTK Architects recommended Option (EYE) “I”. Don Pruitt is with HTK Architects.

Option “I” has both the new Gym and multipurpose room on the west side of the school, a location where they won’t have to refigure many of the utility lines. The School Board discussed some aesthetic changes for the new Middle School Gym and multipurpose room, like brick color and window placement, but in the end, they approved that the district seek bids for Option “I” with suggested changes.
