DES MOINES, Iowa – Simpson College dedicated their new athletic facility to Steven Johnson, a 1981 Simpson graduate. Mr. Johnson serves on the Board of Trustees at Simpson and is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Care View Communications in Lewisville, Texas.
Neumann Brothers renovated the existing athletic center and pool transforming it into a state-of-the-art training facility for students and athletes. The $6 million project began in March 2013 and includes a two-story workout space consisting of a 5,500 square foot strength and conditioning center and a 4,500-square foot exercise and fitness center. In addition to the fitness center, classrooms, office space, an expanded wrestling room, a cheer, dance and multipurpose room, and a new Hall of Fame display were constructed.
"It has been a great experience working with Simpson College to provide the campus with a facility that will impact both athletes and students,” said Kevin Clemens, Project Manager.
The dedication ceremony took place on Friday, February 7th at 12:30 p.m. For more information and pictures of the project visit the Simpson Athletic Center website
