SMWC Breaks Ground on New Sports and Rec Center

It'll be called the Jeanne Knoerle Sports and Recreation Center, named after the Sister of Providence who passed away this year. Officials say this project is years in the making, but they're grateful for all of the people who overcome those challenges. The new center will also host the Pomeroy Wellness Program for on-site health screening and education for the community. It's set to be open by this time next year.
It was all about Pomeroy Pride at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College on Tuesday. 

School officials broke ground on the new sports and recreation center.

Hundreds gathered for the first phase of this new building, excited for what it means for the school.

This site will soon be the new 45,000-square foot building, with space for 1,000 spectators.

It'll be called the Jeanne Knoerle Sports and Recreation Center, named after the Sister of Providence who passed away this year.

Officials say this project is years in the making, but they're grateful for all of the people who overcome those challenges.

"All of these things together have heightened the emotion of today. If the building had come easily, if the building had come quickly, if fewer people would have been involved, it wouldn't be what it is," said Dottie King, president of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. "This is actually a longtime dream come true. It's been a struggle. It's been a labor of love. And because of that, we all feel a sense of how precious today is."

The new center will also host the Pomeroy Wellness Program for on-site health screening and education for the community.

It's set to be open by this time next year.
