Haliburton Athletic Facility
Lepi enterprises was contracted by the 12th man club and Tri-Valley Local School District to construct a new locker room facility for school athletics.
DRESDEN -- Tri-Valley Local Schools dedicated the new Halliburton Athletic Facility during a pre-game ceremony Friday evening at Jack Anderson Stadium.
During the naming ceremony district officials presented a plaque of recognition to Senior Vice President Ron Shuman, of Halliburton's Southern Region.
The facility was open for a tour following the ceremony.
Located behind the visitors bleachers on the east side of the stadium, the building includes locker rooms for home and visiting teams and coaches, handicap-accessible restrooms, changing rooms for sports officials, a weight room, training room and coaches' offices.
The project was made possible by a 10-year agreement between Halliburton and Tri-Valley's 12th Man Club.
"We look forward to being part of the community in this area of Ohio once again, contributing positively to the local economy and continuing our involvement in the communities in which we live and work," said Shuman.
Halliburton, which is building a transportation service center in the EastPointe Business Park to serve oil and gas fracking and drilling operations in the area, pledged donations to the club earlier this year of up to $800,000 over the next 10 years to support the Scotties' athletic programs.
The club worked with Century National Bank to finance the $430,000 project, and funds from ongoing fundraising efforts and annual Halliburton contributions will help make the debt payments on the loan.
Halliburton is providing $35,000 this year and $62,500 in 2013, with a total in donations between $625,000 and $800,000 throughout the decade.
The Halliburton money also is expected to offset and enhance the $350,000 in permanent improvement funds used by the school district to upgrade the home bleachers earlier this year.
The stadium will accommodate 600 more fans. The bleachers were raised so front-row spectators will be able to see the action over the team and coaches' heads, and new sidewalks and handrails improved handicap and emergency crew access.
