The Shenango Area School District recently received a $2.3 million grant to assist with the costs of the Shenango Recreation Complex, unveiled last week. The facility encompasses an indoor track, three basketball and volleyball courts, three pickleball courts, a weight room, long jump and pole vault pits, and a batting cage area.
“The recreation facility will be a great benefit and resource for Shenango Township, local students and the community, not to mention another way to attract potential residents to the area,” said state Sen. Elder Vogel (R-47).
“On behalf of the district, we would like to thank Senator Vogel, Representative Christopher Sainato, Representative Aaron Bernstine and the Shenango Township supervisors for their support of our project,” Shenango Area School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Schrek said.
“Their leadership has been paramount in the effort to bring growth to our area. From the onset, we envisioned the facility would benefit both our students and community and are hopeful the state-of-the-art facility will attract new community growth. The RACP (Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program) funding will go a long way in supporting that vision while helping to ease the tax burden on our district residents.”
