Track at Don Meredith Stadium to be closed during June

The track at Don Meredith Stadium will be closed to walkers while repairs are made to the football field.

Superintendent Dr. Jason McCollough said it will be closed immediately after graduation and most likely through the month of June. Walkers are welcome to use the school boulevard and front parking area. The football field sustained damage due to the extremely wet weather during the playing season. Northeast Texas Field Maintenance will work to fill in holes and level the playing field. See the May 23 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more information from the May meeting of the school board.
