MILWAUKEE, WI - Vincent High School will soon have its own state of the art stadium equipped with synthetic turf for football and soccer and an eight-lane track suitable for Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) events.
“It’s not only going to benefit the students, it’s going to benefit the entire city," Lynn Greb, Director of Recreation for MPS, said.
The estimated project cost is $5,656,791, and despite district-wide budget cuts, Driver said the stadium is funded through the MPS construction fund and includes dollars carried over from local tax levy/ capital project fund balance.
In addition, funding will also come from district borrowed funds and qualified school construction bonds.
The stadium will be ready for play in spring 2019.
