Four Kentucky High Schools Receive 6 New Scoreboards

Henry Clay High School and Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Lexington, Ryle High School in Union and Lloyd Memorial High School in Erlanger recently received new scoreboards. Henry Clay and Dunbar High Schools received new softball scoreboards.  Ryle High and Lloyd Memorial received new baseball and new softball scoreboards.

The scoreboard projects started as an agreement between the high schools athletic directors, and Sports Image®Sports Image® worked with area businesses to help supply the funds for the scoreboard.

“This is truly a win-win situation for both the schools and the sponsors,” said Mac Yocum, Owner of the  Sports Image ® franchises for the Central, Eastern, Northern and Southern Kentucky areas. “The school receives a quality product and revenue for their athletic department and the sponsor will receive great exposure at the sporting events at the school.”

 

Couple scores free equipment for sports programs

As former educators, Mac Yocum and his wife, Julia Harmon-Yocum, know that schools need more revenue.

That’s why the Yocums are excited to be franchise owners with Sports Image – a company that provides free sports equipment for schools by building partnerships with local business to buy advertisement spots on the equipment, such as scoreboards and score tables.

Since becoming franchise owners in November, they’ve been able to give more than $100,000 in sports equipment to schools – including several locally – and several thousand more in cash.
