BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Spartan Stadium Project at Boardman High School continues to move forward and the project just got a big boost in the form of a $40,000 donation.
The money comes from Valley developer and Boardman graduate Chuck Whitman. Some of his projects include the Lifestyle Community in Canfield featuring the Kennsington Golf Club, Kensington Grille and Courtyard Marriott, as well as other residential and commercial developments.
Whitman is a 1972 Spartan graduate. A new ticket booth will bear his name when the project is complete.
Work at the stadium this year will include expansion of the concession plaza and walkway, two new ticket booths and entrance upgrades.
Spartan Stadium opened in 2015. To date, the project has raised over $3 million in donations.
The donation will move the stadium project into the final 10% funding that it needs to finish.
“As we tried to move toward completing the project in full the way we had laid it out, it’s really big to get a donation of this size to finish out the stadium as we intended to,” said Bruce Flyak, Boardman Booster Club President.
