SHS gym, auditorium still not completed

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The newly renovated Southern High School gym and fine arts auditorium are seeing delays in opening. DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez says setbacks are pushing back the May completion date to later this month.

"The delay was due to a couple of things. One was we discovered extensive copper wire missing from the fine arts auditorium so we had to wait to order those and installed and ready to go. The gym we decided to go forward and try to get new flooring in because we noticed the damage to the flooring was extensive," he said.

Broken airconditioning and lack of maintenance resulted in termite infestation to both facilities.

Meanwhile, Fernandez thanks gate theater officials for their assistance with the design of the auditorium, which they are slated to use for productions since the Tiyan Theater's closure late last year.
