Jensen said that the $695,698 project to construct a walkway connecting the main NCHS building and the Mustang Athletic Community Center is on track to be finished around the same time as the pool project wraps up.

Jensen said that a hole has been cut into the main building to allow access to the walkway. He added that the walkway project is “on schedule and on budget.”
