YORK, Neb. — York College is building a 3,000-square-foot weight-training and fitness facility named in honor of Wayne and Darlene Baker.
Wayne Baker served as York’s president from 1996 to 2009.
The extension to Holthus Field House will serve as the new home for the college’s fitness and athletic training needs. The project was made possible by gifts honoring the Bakers.
“Darlene and I are honored by the significant financial gifts that have made this facility a reality,” Baker said.
“The center will focus on the needs of students and their good health for generations to come. It will provide the opportunity for them to excel in meeting their academic, social and spiritual goals as they keep their bodies fit as God intended. We are excited for them.”
