Welcome to the official newsletter of the Ballard High School Alumni Association. Our mission is to keep graduates and friends of Ballard up-to-date on school and alumni news!
Two of Louisville’s leading philanthropists have made a leadership-level donation to cover the cost of a new turf field and its maintenance over the next several years. Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn’s donation was announced on July 27.
Lots of changes are popping up at Pat Crawford Stadium. The new entry plaza is nearing completion, with commemorative donor tile and brick installation nearly complete.
After planning and funding obstacles delayed our ambitious project of improving our entrance and buildings in our Ballard Stadium and our baseball facility, construction is now well underway.
We still need your help. If you have yet to make a contribution or would like to increase your gift, please go to https://chip-in.us/ballard
The big news this month is that JCPS has approved our Alumni Association donation to build the new entryway effective December 1st.
To date, we have received $652,000 toward the costs of rebuilding Pat Crawford Stadium.
Brick and paver sales are up to 314 units since the last newsletter.
Your Alumni Association recognizes the need for fair opportunities for all, regardless of race.
As of today, we have 551 bricks and pavers purchased, up from 504 last month. Thanks for your support!
