He also received the Dominick Bonfili Award for Athlete’s Athlete and the Arthur Clyde Award for Outstanding All Around Athlete.

The social media campaign was launched by presenting a 30’ banner with the campaigns URL on it. The community can go to www.MohigansAthleticProject to learn more.  The project can also be found by searching for Mohigans Athletic Project on Facebook or MHSProject on Twitter.

This $6 million campaign to renovate the athletic facilities at MHS includes a new multi-use building, new and renovated bleachers, new concessions buildings, state-of-the-art  field turf, new lighting, a new scoreboard, new fencing, and related facility improvements.

The Hazel Ruby McQuain Charitable Trust has graciously committed a challenge grant match of one dollar for every dollar contributed by the public up to $2 million to this project. As with so many other local community projects, this gift is key to a successful fundraising campaign.
