Memorial Field renosCommitments to the Memorial Field project now total $700,000, thanks to an anonymous $200,000 pledge dedicated to the main home team locker room. This donor joins Galen Dreibelbis who has committed $500,000 to the project. The plaza area near the entry way at Nittany Avenue will be named in his honor.

Plans to modernize the facilities include a new indoor space for team meetings, four new locker room facilities, new restrooms and pedestrian plazas, as well as a concession stand, training room and press box.

“The district’s goal is to offer the safest and best possible venue to athletes, coaches and fans alike,” Doug Loviscky, president of SCASD Education Foundation, explains, “we’ve been fortunate enough to have the support of generous donors as we work toward this goal.”

In the meantime, another major gift commitment will replace the scoreboard at the South Track. Barbara Sorisio Vinson’s gift will honor her late husband Don, a 1953 graduate of State High.

The generosity of these individuals benefits not only today’s and future generations of State High students, but also the entire community. Safe, functional facilities improve the experience of students participating in athletics, at State High or in youth and community leagues, as well as the fans who come out to cheer on the Little Lions and other teams.

On behalf of the Education Foundation, the school district, families, students and the entire community, thank these generous donors. Don’t forget to register for the FREE community celebration to officially kick off the Memorial Field campaign on September 6!
