School assemblies and swim meets at one local high school could look all together different, thanks to new proposal. This week, school administrators will meet with an architect to discuss the design for a new pool and auditorium at Davenport Central High School. 

Greg Larrison, architect and CEO of Larrison & Associates, has done work on the school for about thirty years. He designed a new gym 12 years ago. Replacing the 4-lane pool, which was built in the late 1920s, is the next critical project, he says.
