SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – Renovations at Salem’s football stadium seem to be moving along nicely.
On Thursday, crews laid down gravel as a base for the new turf field. The next step is to put the turf down and install a synthetic track.
The new video board is one of the biggest in the area at 26 by 30 feet, paid for by a $120,000 donation from the Hickey Family. Students will develop everything for the board in a video production class starting this fall.
“The people of the community are really excited about it. It’s going to be a wow factor, it’s going to be great for our student athletes here in Salem,” said Director of Facilities Todd McLaughlin.
The school says they still have about two months of work left, but they expect the field to be ready for the Quakers’ first home football game against East Liverpool.
