“It’s definitely been the big project,” Harmon said. “It’s been a process for sure, but it’s hopefully on the horizon, and it’s going to be really nice when it gets completed.”

The space, located on Marquette’s campus, previously served as a locker room. Harmon explained that they removed a few ventilation walls and extra equipment to restore the area for the weight room to its “bare bones.” Now, it’s in the process of being painted and refurbished so that it’s ready for students to use as soon as the school year starts on Aug. 17.

“That’s definitely what we’re looking forward to the most, is having a new space for the kids. That’s really what it’s about,” Harmon said. “And that’s what any educator or administrator is going to tell you. It’s about the look on the kids’ faces when they’re excited to see something new. Definitely, we’re excited about that.”
