Scoreboard ads mean money for Central, North other EVSC schools | Schools
EVSC Foundation presented ten checks totaling $116,282 to each of the EVSC’s five high school principals and athletic directors in the corporation during tonight’s School Board meeting, from sponsorship proceeds of the L.E.D. scoreboards at each of the five multipurpose complexes including North and Central High Schools.
The funding is used as building leaders deem appropriate, for a variety of projects and needs at each school. Some of the things that have been funded through these monies include: classroom strategies for interactive learning, response to intervention services, student memberships in a variety of organizations, senior honor roll luncheon, student travel to academic competitions, and a class set of Advanced Placement textbooks.
St. Mary’s Medical Center was the catalyst making all of this possible, through its gift to fund the construction of state-of-the-art digital scoreboards at each complex, which have the ongoing benefit of space to showcase community and business sponsorships and also provide annual funding from these sponsorships to be used by the schools where needs exist.
