$105,000 AZSTA Grant to Renovate Sports Field!
On November 1st, we received the wonderful news from the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority (AZSTA) of a $105,000 grant to renovate our sports field! This generous grant is a 2/3 match of the total $160,000 cost of the project. Work will begin next spring to fully remediate the soil, crown and drain the field, and install high-quality sod and a new irrigation system. Farewell "Lake Veritas"! These improvements will give our students and student-athletes a much more safe and reliable field to call home. Our thanks to AZSTA, the parents and coaches who advocated for these improvements, and to Mrs. Sarah Marbach for leading the way with this grant.
