Fundraising campaign to support construction of Millcreek school sports complex at McDowell High School

Five student-athletes at McDowell High School in Millcreek Township participated in a Signing Day ceremony to make their college commitments official. The event was a celebration of their athletic achievements and future endeavors.

In conjunction with the Millcreek Education Foundation, the Millcreek Township School District is launching a capital campaign to raise funds for a multi-sport stadium. The proposed complex would be constructed at Gus Anderson Field at McDowell High School and include a fieldhouse, track, lighting, and other facilities.

District and foundation officials stated that the envisioned athletic complex will offer modern amenities to support a diverse range of sports and student activities. The facility aims to enhance the athletic and spectator experience for students and the community, promoting physical activity, skill development, and community engagement.

The estimated cost of the project is $10 million to $15 million, with the school board committing $5 million from a recent bond issue. The Millcreek Education Foundation will work to raise the remaining funds through partnerships and community contributions.

Pre-kindergarten enrollment in Millcreek Township has remained steady despite a tuition increase. The district will seek proposals from architectural firms for the multi-sport stadium project, with presentations scheduled for the School Board’s April 15 committee meetings.
