Tonight the board of school directors will vote on the proposed scoreboard replacement at the bi-weekly school board meeting.
The original long-standing scoreboard at Horn Field was sent down by straight-line winds last fall, resulting in the usage of a small borrowed scoreboard from York College for the remainder of the fall sports season.
Athletic Director Arnold Fritzius and Marketing and Communications Manager Donald Dimoff have presented to the school board twice so far to discuss fundraising and scoreboard specifications.
The proposed scoreboard will cost an estimated $201,948 and will bring in money year after year thanks to advertising, according to Dimoff. The initial cost of the board will be covered by fundraising efforts and advertising with no tax dollars being utilized.
Additionally, past meeting presentations have indicated the scoreboard has an educational value to it, as it includes a video board that students will be able to manage during public events as well as produce work to be featured on it.
The school board meeting will be held at the Red Lion Education Center on 696 Delta Road at 7:30 p.m.
