Sherrard Considering Up To $1-Million In Athletic Facility Improvements

A number of improvements on the drawing board for Sherrard High School athletic facilities.  They include a wood floor for the main gym, new lights at Clifford King Field and a new wrestling room.

Superintendent Alan Boucher says the projects are estimated at around $1-million. He says they would be funded through an interfund loan with the money paid back through proceeds from the school facility tax in Mercer and Rock Island County—which total around $480,000 per year for the Sherrard School District.
