CARTERVILLE, IL (KFVS) -

The Community Health Education Complex (CHEC), run by John A. Logan Community College, held its grand reopening on Thursday, March 24. The complex had been closed for renovations to the aquatic center. Those improvements include replacing the roof, painting the pool, and remodeling the locker rooms.

The public was invited for an open house. Free health screenings, live music, fitness classes, and free food were all available for the day.

"We like to emphasize, John A. Logan is a community college and we are the community health education complex," CHEC director Bradley Griffith said. "So, we're not just for students like some people may think. We serve a wide range of patrons and we really want everybody in the community to come and visit with us, exercise, and improve their health here."

Memberships for the public are available. Click here for pricing and hours.

College president Ronald House was present to give introductions and acknowledgments. Art instructor Drew Tucker was also thanked for painting the Logan logo on the wall of the aquatics center.
