BEAVER TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – There’s a campaign to build a new football stadium at the South Range Local School District’s K-12 campus.
According to The Morning Journal, the district hopes to raise $300,000 for the turf. Other phases of the project include raising money for bleachers, lights, concessions, restrooms, locker rooms and paved parking lots.
Earlier this year, the South Range Schools Foundation provided $111,000 for the project after the Rominger Estate in September committed 90 percent of its annual donation to the complex including the stadium, according to the Morning Journal. The foundation has also challenged the community to match dollar for dollar once the first $100,000 is raised for the campaign, which would raise enough for the turf installation.
To generate donations, the boosters have also started a 300 Club, seeking 300 donors to give $1,000 each. Donors would receive ownership of one linear foot of turf, priority access to private VIP seats at the stadium, two years preferred parking and a name on a plaque.
South Range currently plays its games at the stadium behind the old high school in North Lima.
Those wanting to learn more about the project can attend an informational meeting January 7 at the high school auditorium.
