The Cannon County Lion football program along with the Touchdown Club Of Cannon County Football Boosters would like to thank First National Bank of Woodbury for their generous donation to help fund a new state of the art public address announcing system which will cover the entire Fred Schwartz Field at the high school.
"This was a joint effort on behalf of the Cannon County School Board, the Touchdown Club of Cannon County, and a generous donation from First National Bank. This is a great example of the community coming together to fulfill a need at one of our local schools." said a grateful Head Coach Matt Daniel.
The total project was $13,314. So far stage one has been installed with stage two and three to follow.
The Cannon County School Board supported the project with $9,900 from Capital Outlay. First National Bank made a donation of $3,000 to support the project. The Cannon County Touchdown Club sponsored the remainder and will provide upkeep to the system.
Mr. Ben Williams with Essential Audio out of Nashville, has provided the equipment and installation for this project.
Currently, stage one consisted of home side speakers and sound kit including a microphone and space to run computers and additional microphones.
Stage two consists of a wireless microphone with long range antenna to service the entire complex.
Stage three consists of wireless speakers being mounted on the visitors sideline to provide adequate sound for events held on the field such as graduation, and other athletic and school events.
