The Bill Matthew’s Football Field at Minico High School will be donning a new scoreboard next season, thanks in part to a generous $5,000 donation from PMT.
Minico’s scoreboard was no longer functioning correctly and needed replacement. “It was a dinosaur of a scoreboard and the company that made it could no longer fix the problems it had,” states Ty Shippen, Minco Athletic Director. “Rather than sink money into an obsolete board, we decided to pursue a new board that would be functional and reliable. We want our community, coaches, and players not to have to worry about whether the scoreboard is functioning. A first-class football program shouldn’t have problems with their scoreboard. It reflects poorly on our team and is frustrating for our fans.”
“We are so grateful for the generous support of PMT and other local businesses. Athletics and extra-curricular activities provide opportunities and teach amazing life lessons to our students. We are fortunate to have businesses, like PMT, that recognize the impact extra-curricular activities have on the entire community and are willing to help support our schools,” said Josh Aston, Minico Principal.
“We’re excited to give this money to Minico High School Athletics to help fund their new scoreboard,” states Dan Hoover, PMT President, and CEO. “High school football is a community affair around here, and we’re glad to know that we had a part in ensuring all those that watch the games at Minico in the years to come will be able to view the score on a fully functioning scoreboard.”
The new scoreboard has been ordered and will be installed in time for the 2019 football season.
