Thanks to the generosity of several organizations, the Vicksburg High School Stadium received a nearly $8,000 facelift in time for its football season home opener and the Community Tailgate event on September 6.

New banners greeted fans on the stadium’s south-side parking lot, as well as a new banner on the north side of the stadium, courtesy of the Athletic Boosters. The Boosters contributed $4,700 to replace the old banners which lasted seven years.

The front of the press box now identifies the pride of the Bulldogs with newly-installed signage as a result of the joint effort of the Class of 2013, the Class of 2013 Project Graduation, and from the Athletic Department’s spirit-wear sales, for an additional $2,400. The finishing touch of new goal post pads was through the joint efforts of the Vicksburg Rocket Football program donating $500, and the Athletic Department donating $250, all to add to the District’s pride in its top-of-the-line facilities, according to Athletic Director Mike Roy.
