Norwin breaks ground for high school addition

| Monday, May 14, 2012, 3:13 p.m.

Though earthmoving has already begun in earnest, Norwin School District on Saturday celebrated the start of construction on a $32 million addition to the high school.

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
