Thanks to three very generous donors, Oak Harbor High School's Rocket Stadium will have a brand new scoreboard beginning in the fall of 2013. The new Fair-Play scoreboard is eight feet larger than the previous one, and features all LED lighting which will prove to be far more energy efficient and require far less maintenance from the district.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) donated the lion's share of the money required for this project, while the Oak Harbor Athletic Booster Club and Tri-Motor Sales donated sizable amounts as well. These three donors covered the entire cost of the new scoreboard.
Installation of this new scoreboard will begin in mid to late July, depending on the weather, and will be done by the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District Maintenance staff. Several more community donations of time and materials are currently being worked on to help with the installation.
Director of Athletics Drew Grahl commented: “Thanks to IBEW, the Oak Harbor Athletic Boosters, and Tri-Motor Sales for being a part of this exciting upgrade to Rocket Stadium.”
