Goal overview of the GAHS Stadium and STEM Project
·Our first goal is to
raise $1.5 Million by September 21, 2020 to start building Phase 1.
oPhase 1 of the proposed
project is to build a fully functioning 17,000-20,000 square foot field house
with STEM classrooms.
oThe 10,000 square foot
first floor is presently designed with home and visitor locker room with
showers and restrooms, a spacious weight room with windows, officials prep
area, a training room with field access for injuries, ample storage, coaches’
offices, and a conference room that can be used for anything from team
briefings to watching film to meetings.
oAway side concessions
and restroom facilities are efficiently positioned on the end of the building
so that they are not only utilized in football and track season, but are
accessible to the nearby baseball and softball fields as well.This will accommodate all the athletic needs
of all the athletes at GAHS within the Eastman Athletic Complex.
oThis complex NOW
includes one baseball field, one softball field, multiple tennis courts, and an
all season track.
oThe potential 7,000-10,000 square foot second
story of the field house would provide our students with classrooms and
conference rooms equipped with advanced technology geared towards Science,
Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine.
oBoth aspects of this
facility would be utilized by the adult school community for their physical
fitness needs, as well as an educational facility for adult education classes,
community meetings, and an adult training center.
across all sports will have a 17,000-20,000 square foot facility in which to
learn and train. In the center of this beautiful new facility stands the
grand entry arch from which our players will take the field.
·Our second goal is to
raise $3.5 Million by May 9, 2024 (Phase 2)
oThe proposed Phase Two of the GAHS Stadium and STEM Project
will be the construction of the multi-purpose stadium itself to include the
home and visitor bleachers, all weather synthetic surface field, scoreboard,
lighting, etc. The estimated cost of Phase Two has been set at
$3,500,000. This entire project will allow for facilities that can be
fully utilized by the entire community and the Appalachian region for their
educational and recreational needs.
