Citizens State Bank Makes Donation to Sheldon Turf Project

Citizens State Bank is pleased to announce their $50,000 contribution towards the turf facility upgrade.

The turf upgrade will be located on the current Sheldon CSD football field, and is a collaborative project between the Sheldon CSD, Northwest Iowa Community College and the City of Sheldon.  The new playing surface will be used for the Sheldon CSD football team, soccer program and the marching band.  Additionally, Northwest Iowa Community College will be utilizing the grounds when they begin their intercollegiate soccer program, which is slated to begin in either Fall 2023 or Fall 2024.

“Citizens State Bank has a tradition of helping our local schools, and this project benefits both Northwest Iowa Community College and the Sheldon Community School District. The field and scoreboard will give utility and versatility to their athletic and music programs, and will be a great improvement to the athletic complex. Our bank’s roots are in Sheldon and projects like this make Sheldon a better place” says Rob Dixon, Chairman and CEO of Citizens State Bank.

Groundbreaking for the project is slated to begin in Spring 2022, with use by the Sheldon CSD in the Fall of 2022.

The cost of the project is estimated to be $1.4 million dollars, which includes the turf project and an enhanced scoreboard.  Currently, around $1.1 million has been solidified between the Sheldon CSD, NCC and various donors.
