The first purchase of a naming right for Greencastle-Antrim School District facilities, and in this case a part of the athletic stadium, will be announced Friday during halftime of the Blue Devil football game.

Officials with G-A MAAX or Maximizing Arts and Athletic X-cellence (the foundation formed to conduct a public fund raising campaign to pay for the stadium improvements) say a huge announcement is planned at halftime of the Waynesboro at G-A football game Friday, Sept. 30.

In June the school board approved a program for the purchase of naming rights of various school district facilities.

G-A MAAX, the organization operating a $2.5 million fundraising campaign to repay the Greencastle-Antrim School District for the bond taken out for the recent athletic complex upgrades, has announced that the first of those naming rights is ready to be made public.

When the school board approved the naming rights program the options included from $1 million for the whole outdoor complex and $4,000 for the middle school cardio room.

A check presentation will be made at halftime to the honorary chairmen of G-A MAAX, Jeff Shank and Garon Gembe.

Kickoff of the game with Waynesboro is 7:30 p.m.
