With the new school year quickly approaching, The Howard School’s new stadium is being completed in time for their August 23 football home game.
The Hamilton County Department of Education contacted Tennessee American Water Engineer Project Manager, Grady Stout, regarding a pipe that runs through the field.
Mr. Stout knew this main would need to be relocated to avoid excavating the new field when maintenance or repairs are performed. This main is a critical pipe which delivers water to a nearby pumping station for the City sewer system and Tennessee American Water.
Tennessee American Water let HCDE know that they would assist with the project at no additional cost and crews quickly went to work.
“Many people have helped make this new stadium a reality,” said Tennessee American Water President Darlene Williams. “We are happy to have played a part of this community effort and help alleviate costs.”
“Partnerships in the community make us stronger as we work together with the best interest of children as our top priority,” said Dr. Bryan Johnson, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools. “We look forward to the Fightin’ Tigers of Howard sprinting to the finish in a beautiful new athletic facility this fall thanks to the assistance of Tennessee American Water.”
