Wauconda, Illinois– Wauconda High School will soon be the recipient of a brand-new scoreboard at Ray Porten Athletic field. The scoreboard will be state-of-the-art and the school will get it absolutely FREE without any work or financial obligation on behalf of the school.
The scoreboard project started as an agreement between the high school Athletic Director, James Vanfleet and Sports Image®. Sports Image® is responsible for securing advertising around the scoreboard. In years to come, the school will receive revenue for their athletic programs as a result of future sponsorships on the scoreboard.
“This is a great opportunity for both Wauconda High School and local/regional businesses,” said Scott King, Owner, Sports Image® Northern Illinois. “The school is going to get a very high quality product and revenue for their athletic department whereas the sponsor will receive great exposure at the sporting events and the knowledge that they helped their local high school. The reduction in state educational budgets has made it possible for local/regional businesses to truly partner with Wauconda High School.”
“By working together with our business community and Sports Image we hope to make this wonderful upgrade to our main athletic field as soon as possible,” says James Vanfleet, Athletic Director at Wauconda High School.
