CIRCLEVILLE ? The Circleville school board approved several naming rights contracts at its latest meeting, bringing the total financial commitment for the new athletic complex to $450,000.
Agreements with the Savings Bank, McDonalds, Coughlin Cars, the McGowan family and the Eric Clark Memorial Fund were all made official Wednesday.
Of those donors, the Savings Bank made the most significant contribution of $100,000 by purchasing the naming rights to the football stadium, which will be known as the Savings Bank Stadium.
The McGowan family purchased naming rights to the track, and the Clark Memorial Fund purchased naming rights for the varsity football locker room, which will be dually named since it doubles as a wrestling room.
Superintendent Kirk McMahon said a couple deals with Berger Health System for the field house and the Sneed family for the weight room have not yet been made official, but with those considered, the district has raised $450,000 from naming rights deals.In addition to the school board's $1 million commitment, the district has raised nearly $2 million of its $3.3 million goal for the athletic complex.
With the $3.3 million, the district plans to renovate the football stadium and install field turf as well as build a field house, baseball complex, softball complex and tennis courts.
