You may have already seen this but those of us who are still active in the NHS Alumni Association are passing it on. Thanks!

The lights have gone out at
was blown out during a storm, the
lighting system was donated twenty years ago, and has never been maintained by the District. Since the District is
experiencing serious financial issues, we, a group of concerned parents, alumni and coaches, have taken on the
monumental task of raising the necessary funds to remedy this situation.
We are in the process of
securing information regarding our
options for repair or replacement of the lighting system.
Ideally, we would love to install a brand new system; however, with time of the essence, we may have to come up with
a temporary fix for the upcoming seasons. Information gathered thus far indicates that a repair can be accomplished
for $69,000.00, while a new system would cost approximately $185,000.000.
If you have ever attended an
evening event at NHS Stadium, you
know that there is nothing quite like it.
The stadium is
a showcase for our male and female athletes participating in football, soccer, lacrosse, and cheerleading. Our band is
also showcased during their performances at the stadium.
There have been two articles
published about our situation. One was
published in the News Journal, on
6/29/07 and the
other was published in the Newark Post, on 7/6/07. Both can be accessed online. I think you will find them very informative.
To keep track of our
progress and for news of possible fundraising
events visit the Yellowjackets website at
www.nhsjackets.com. There will also be a link to our information available through the NHS website, and information
on the Alumni website (www.nhsalumni.org).
If there are any questions I can answer for you, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 302-893-7197.
Please, help us keep the lights on at Hoffman Stadium.
