The latest news from a TigerBlast email note - getting lights for the Athletic Field:
South to get lights and updated field in 2018
After many, many years of complaints, meetings and discussions, South’s athletic field will finally be updated. The football field will get a synthetic field and lights for night games. The soccer field will be positioned to fit on the field. The track will have eight lanes, allowing meets to be held at South. However, there is no guarantee of a press box and sound system. That is where we need your help. We need to raise $100,000 for the press box and sound system. That is a lot of money, but we believe that with your help, we can do it!
If you have ever played a sport at South, especially football, track or soccer, or if you ever attended a football game or track or soccer meet or any other sport event, we are asking you to consider making a donation to the South High Foundation. Write "athletic field" in the comment section of your check, and we will make sure that your donation is credited to this project. You can also make your donation here at the Foundation web site by clicking on the green "Donate Now" near the top right corner of this page, and make your donation earmarking it for the athletic field.
We can do this. We hope that the updated field will be ready by December 2018! So we don’t have much time. Have any questions? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know of several reunions scheduled at this point. Find out more by clicking here.
