Olympic-Size Pool Planned for Vol State


The addition of an Olympic-sized pool on the Vol State campus was announced today. The pool, shown under construction in the above photo, will support the newly announced Water Polo Studies program at the college.

Water Polo studies, which will reside in the Health Sciences division, will be lead by Tami Wallace, former Director of Marketing and Public Relations. Wallace captained the Auburn University Water Polo teams for three years, losing the conference championship each year to the University of Alabama.

"TBR has mandated that every community college have a Water Polo Studies program," said president Jerry Faulkner. "We're excited about this new pool, which will replace the Humanities Building project. We thank Jay-Z and Beyonce for their generous donation to the college which will allow us to expand into the rapidly growing field of Water Polo Studies. This is just one of many new programs coming to Vol State, including the exciting addition of Gopher Husbandry and Whiskey Distillation."

"I am so excited about my new role leading the Water Polo Studies program," said Wallace. "I think assistant coach Emily Short and locker room attendant Tim Amyx will do a fine job in their new roles as well."

The Humanities Building project has been transitioned to a make-over of the former smoking area gazebo, which will house 27 faculty offices and four classrooms.



The editor of this publication does not condone April Fools pranks, but when asked to do such, will do it right.
