New McCracken Co high school reaching naming rights deals
The new McCracken County High School has reached deals to sell naming rights to their gymnasium and on-campus field houses. They’re also seeking sponsors willing to pay up to $200,000 to name the football stadium.
The Paducah Sun reports the county Board of Education has already agreed to a 10-year contract with The Orthopaedic Institute of Western Kentucky for the rights to name three on-campus field houses. For a fee, the institute will provide a certified athletic trainer, saving the district almost half the estimated cost of a full-time salary and benefits. School Activities Director Kris Garrett says funds raised through sponsorships go to the district's activities budget, decreasing general fund allocations. If all available rights are contracted, the district will generate $122,000 a year.
