Enterprise, Ala (WDHN)—Recently, Governor Kay Ivey told Enterprise City School Superintendent, Greg Faught, that his district
will receive a large financial shot in the arm.
An Alabama Public School and College Authority bond issue will pump-in more than eight-and-a-half million dollars
into Enterprise City Schools.
More than one million of those dollars will be used for artificial turf at the high school’s wildcat stadium.
Wildcat Assistant Head Coach Jed Kennedy says “the wear and tear, rain doesn’t affect it. It can really look just as good in three years as it
did on day one.”
Just under 60-thousand will go toward correcting “Long term” erosion issues behind Pinedale Elementary.
Its principal, Trey Mims, says
“First and for most, it will lead to student safety. And have a system in place to stop erosion.”
Reporter Mike Gurspan says
“One of the most expensive projects is a storm shelter to be built at the Enterprise Career and Technology Center, which
Is the “old” College Street Elementary School.”
Following the March 2007 “deadly tornado” which killed eight Enterprise High School students.
Safety from severe weather is now the main priority.
Enterprise City School Superintendent Greg Faught says “we have the safest schools as possible, and with this bond issue we will be able to address the Enterprise Career and Technology Center
and make sure we have a storm shelter at that school. So when high school students are there during the day,
they will are safe from stormy weather.”
