Board President Jackie Carbone stated, “We want to thank the community for their continual support of the district-wide infrastructure improvement. We look forward to having our athletes and their competitors use the new turf field. In addition to the new track and press box which we opened last fall, we are delighted that our athletes and visitors have a state-of-the-art facility.” Members of the Board of Education, administration, KSQ Architects, and construction managers Arris Contracting will be present and the public is invited to attend.
The turf field and track renovation was managed through the 2006 bond. The press box is a donation from Hull Construction, with the support of the Yorktown Athletic Club, Yorktown Huskers Sports Club, Arris Contracting and KSQ Architects.
