(Harrison, Oh.) – Ground has been broken in Harrison for the new Harrison High School multi-purpose practice fields.
The school is celebrating 100 years of athletics programs by renovating their sports facilities. The Wildcats “Century of Excellence” facility renovation fundraising campaign has been working to raise $300,000 to build a new sports facility at the school.
The project broke ground on Friday, November 15. Putting the first spades into the dirt were School Board member Kim Downey, Harrison Junior School Athletic Director Mark Meibers, Harrison Mayor Joel McGuire, Mercy Health representative Lisa Sweeterman, Harrison Athletic Boosters President Brian Knauer, Harrison High School Athletic Director Mike Schiering and Southwest Local School District Superintendent Chris Brown.
The money from the fundraising campaign will go to pay for the installation of new track & field complex, the installation of new four-pole light and sound system at the football stadium, and the installation of multi-purpose practice fields on campus.
