One of the most unique attributes at Higley High School is the considerably large weight room located in the field house on campus. Rumors around campus have been that Mr. Dille (vice principal and athletic director of Higley High School) plans to make some changes to the weight room.

When asked in an interview about the upcoming changes Mr. Dille stated, “Some of the changes have started, and we will continue to make changes until some time in the summer.” A common misconception among worried students with the new changes is that these are not by any means renovations but small changes and improvements. “We are just enhancing the weight room, [we are] updating and fixing broken equipment.”

One of the biggest changes to the weight room is the new wrap that Mr. Dille plans to have put on the walls. “Currently we are working with a company to have wraps put on the walls much like the one at the front office,” Dille stated.

Much concern has risen about the cost effectiveness of these changes and many students feel that the money for these changes would be better used for something else at school. Mr. Dille put these concerns to rest by stating, “we have been putting money aside for these changes for awhile and most of the money is coming from ticket sales for sporting events.”

Mr. Dille’s main reason for changing the weight room is to make it a place where students can go and get the workout they need to excel in athletics. The weight room will receive new and improved items in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes open for these future changes.
