McCoy Federal Credit Union Athletic Complex Ribbon cutting
Boone High School and the Boone High School Athletic Association (BHSAA) are pleased to announce the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new McCoy Federal Credit Union Athletic Complex on Friday, September 1, 2017 at 7pm at Boone's first home football game of the 2017 season. This project includes a new turf field, upgraded video scoreboard and press box, renovations to the restrooms and the concession stand.
Boone's athletic complex and football field were badly in need of renovation and in the case of the field - total replacement. After planning for several years the "Revive the Tribe" campaign kicked of in October of 2016 with a goal of raising $1.3M to fund the project. The Revive the Tribe campaign included receptions, team sponsored events and individual outreach to the local corporate market, alumni, and current Boone families.
"McCoy Federal Credit Union provided the biggest boost to the project by agreeing to sponsor Boone's Athletic Complex for 5 years" said Boone principal Dusty Johns. "Once the key corporate sponsors, led by McCoy, were in place, the Boone community rallied around the project. We received more than 350 individual donations from Boone alum to current families and even individual students. The project could not have happened without the great support we've had from everyone in the Boone community."
The McCoy Federal Credit Union Athletic Complex will be used by many Boone sports teams, the band, cheerleaders, Bravettes, ROTC, as well as local youth football and lacrosse teams. Due to the high quality of the turf field, Boone will also be able to host events such as regional and state high school championships. The Revive the Tribe campaign will continue into the 2017-18 school year as BHSAA hopes to raise additional funds to install a new track and replace the lights on the baseball field.
