Knights News · The Backman Family Makes Large Donation For Multi-Purpose Field


South Dearborn Alumni Mr. Jerry Backman, donated $500,000 for the construction of a multi-purpose turf field on the SDHS campus at tonights school board meeting.   This field will service every student attending the South Dearborn Community School Corporation and many more.  Physical education classes, band, soccer, football, cheerleading, baseball, softball, and programs at every level will benefit from this generous donation.  The construction of the multi-purpose field will elevate South Dearborn to the facility standing of the other county schools.  Details remain to be worked through before construction can begin, but the donation was excepted by an unanimous school board vote.
