Norwin breaks ground for high school addition
Wind and light rain whipping across the top of Mockingbird Hill in North Huntingdon Township did not dampen the spirits of parents, construction workers and others who gathered at 9 a.m. for the formal groundbreaking.
Renovations will be performed on every room of the school, built in 1965. Additions will include a new gymnasium, main entrance, administrative offices, library and vocational-technical classrooms. The project is overseen by architects N. John Cunzolo Associates and Foreman Construction Management.
Breaking ground were School Board President Robert Perkins, school Superintendent Dr. Richard Watson and High School Principal Dr. Edward Federinko. Others included school directors Stephen Eichelberger, Frances Ekl, Richard Hensler, Dennis Rittenhouse, Thomas Sturm and Kate Zingarelli; Human Resources Director Dr. Janet Franicola; Elementary Education Director John Boylan; and assistant high school principals Floyd Marshall and Joseph Shigle.
