Premier Communications 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.
“Supporting the communities we serve is of upmost importance to Premier Communications and that is why we are very excited to partner with the Sheldon Community School District, Northwest Iowa Community College and the City of Sheldon on this project. Amenities like this are appealing for athletic and marching band use, which then allows more tournaments and other events to happen in the community” says Doug Boone, CEO of Premier Communications.
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.
For more information on the project or to donate, contact Eric Maassen at the Sheldon CSD at 712- 324-2504 or Kristi Landis at NCC at 800-352-4907 ext. 164.
