Back in mid March, it was announced that the Cherokee School Board has approved funding for a new all-weather track and parking lot resurfacing at Washington High School. That project is currently underway. Another project that was to be included is repairing the tennis courts located at the Sam Doupe Complex off Indian Street in Cherokee, but because of financial constraints, that project was postponed until next year in April's School Board actions. Work on the new all-weather track has begun with the removal of the old surface. (Photo by Jeff Benson).
