CHESSIE MAKES SIZABLE DONATION TO FRIENDS OF MCKINNEY FIELD – Chessie Federal Credit Union President Dr. Richard Dougherty traveled from Cumberland Thursday morning to present a sizable check to Friends of McKinney Field for its turfing project. Dougherty was joined by local Chessie representatives to make the donation. Dennis R. Shumaker, Friends of McKinney Field Member, said, “I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the ‘Friends of McKinney Field’ to thank Chessie Federal Credit Union for this generous donation. It’s nice to know that Chessie supports this effort for the kids of Taylor County and the surrounding areas that will have kids playing on the field in various sports.” Shown above from left to right are Laurie Ice and Kim McDougal from the local branch of Chessie Federal Credit Union, Grafton High School Principal Dr. Joseph Findley, Chessie Federal Credit Union President Dr. Richard Dougherty and Friends of McKinney Field representative Dennis R.

GRAFTON- Due to the over whelming rumors regarding the McKinney field project at Grafton High School, Superintendent of Schools Charles R. Maynard made a visit to the Mountain Statesman Friday morning to announce the status of the project.

“At this point in time, the first installment of the $250,000 has been paid," explained Superintendent of Schools Charles R. Maynard.

A payment totaling $262,000 was made to ProGrass LLC.

The start date of construction is May 13, weather permitting.

Maynard informed the Mountain Statesman that all spring sports taking place at GHS, including sporting events from the Taylor County Middle School, would be completed before construction begins.
