HOME OF THE BRAVES TO BE FINISHED IN SPRING OF 2020!
Construction continues at the new Home of the Braves. The building is now under roof and is anticipated to be open for spring sports. The entire Home of the Braves Complex is expected to be completed in later spring, prior to graduation. Keep your eyes open for the grand opening celebration announcement !
The building will feature multiple locker rooms at field level, centralized spaces for coaches, trainers and referees as well as conveniently located upper field restrooms and concessions.
It will be the new home for many sports teams including football, lacrosse, track, cross country, baseball, softball, tennis and more.
And, the new Welcome Plaza will tie together the entire athletic complex from the practice field to the baseball/softball fields all the way down to Tomahawk Stadium via the new Monumental Stairway. Most importantly, it will create a large outdoor gathering space perfect for district events and celebrations.
The Indian Hill School District and the Indian Hill Foundation would like to thank Mr. Peter Klekamp, and Mr. Craig Sumerel who generously agreed to co-chair this fundraising endeavor. Mr. Klekamp and Mr. Sumerel quickly assembled a volunteer cabinet dedicated to taking on a task never before attempted in Indian Hill – raising community funds for a school project. This committee of zealous and committed volunteers, led by Mr. Klekamp and Mr. Sumerel, reached out to current parents, alumni, and community members championing the benefits the new facility would bring to both students and the community. Over 300 families and business contributed to this project ranging from leadership gifts to the purchase of small pavers. Additionally, this campaign generated the largest gift ever to the Indian Hill Foundation – a transformative matching grant of $500,000.
The new Home of the Braves is the direct result of the bold philanthropic support by our community for our community. Thank you!
