Patrick Henry High School dedicates new stadium field

Henry High ribbon-cutting ceremony Board Member Kevin Beiser and Area Two Superintendent David Lorden joined Principal Patricia Crowder, coaches and athletes representing various sports to dedicate Patrick Henry High School's new field and track in the Patriots' stadium.  Students, parents, boosters and community members attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony that was held just before the first varsity home football game on Friday, Aug. 31.

The previous field and track were replaced with a new 50,307 square-foot, all-weather track; and a new 79,306-square-foot, synthetic turf field with game markings, and a new drainage and cleaning system. There is another 20,660 square feet for track and field events. The $1,901,252 construction project was funded by Proposition S capital improvement bond funds, which cannot be used for teachers' or administrators' salaries. The project partners were PJHM Architects and Byrom-Davey, general contractor.
"This is a great investment in our students," said Board Member Beiser.
