The Pontiac High School locker rooms were in very poor condition, and various states of disrepair. The school board was looking to create marquee locker rooms for all athletic purposes, including general all-school use, junior varsity, and varsity. The locker rooms were created with intentional differentiation between the three tiers of all-school, junior varsity, and varsity. While all locker rooms needed to serve a similar purpose, the locker rooms are intended to incentivize advancement, and provide a graduated level of prestige for school athletes. Other features of these projects include large athletic graphics in the corridors, for impact on both students and visiting parents. Also included is a special area to celebrate the championship-winning Phoenix wrestling program. The intention of these renovations was to invest in important student programs in a meaningful, impactful way. Showing commitment to the student athletes of Pontiac High School has resulted in immediate student retention and student recruitment.
