Walker Natatorium Makes a Big Splash at Groundbreaking at KHS Electricity was in the air on Aug. 6, as rain, lightning and thunder delayed the Kirkwood School District “Splashbreaking” for The Walker Natatorium on the campus of Kirkwood High School.   An audience of more than 300, which included students, parents and community members, attended the event, which had to be moved indoors to the school's Denver Miller Gymnasium. Greeting them was the KHS Band, playing the “Pioneer Fight Song.”   The rain clearly didn’t dampen the crowd's excitement, as Earl E. and Myrtle E. Walker Foundation trustees and District officials kicked off the official groundbreaking of The Walker Natatorium. A rendering of the outside of the facility that will house the pool was on display and an outline of the ...
