Many thanks go to Athletic Director Fitz Barnes and MHS Principal Billy Haun for their leadership on this this project, and to the Monticello boosters who raised a lot of money to ensure the field could be paid for entirely with private funds. In the ceremony, I thanked all of these folks, as well as the very generous anonymous donor, that worked together to ensure Monticello's vision for world class athletic facilities will be a reality next school year. Thank you!
