William Penn Pool Restoration Project
Since March 2016, a community group of York High alumni have been organizing to accomplish an ambitious but important goal: Fix the swimming pool and diving tank at William Penn Senior High School.
The pool, which once hosted one of York County’s premier aquatics programs, has been empty for about seven years.
Constructed in 1971, the pool no longer meets PIAA competition requirements and requires significant upgrades.
The BT Express, a community group that advocates for the academic and athletic success of York City students, has partnered with York City Mayor Kim Bracey and York County Economic Alliance President and CEO Kevin Schreiber as co-chairs of the $1.2 million capital campaign.
On Jan. 26, 2017, the BT Express held a press conference at the high school to announce the campaign.
