Obviously, you haven’t been following the financial situation of Gallia schools.Reds Fan wrote: ↑Tue Oct 09, 2018 12:52 pmI don't think gallia is a poor school system, Holzer hospital could be huge donor to the school and just like Jacksons stadium I could see them donating money to gallia to help build a nice new stadiumBillC wrote: ↑Tue Oct 09, 2018 12:42 pmThey already have a track and field beside the school. Basically, all that would be necessary are new bleachers installed and maybe bathrooms and concession stand. Would that be ideal? No, but it’s a start. Money could be raised and improvements made as you go. At least you would be out of that sewer pit.
The problem is that the powers that be in Gallipolis can’t stand the fact that Point Pleasant and Jackson (gallipolis’s two biggest rivals) both have built beautiful new stadiums. Gallipolis needs to move on and accept that they are a smaller school and maybe can’t afford all the bells and whistles.
Holzer donated mega bucks to both Jackson and Point Pleasant, however, that was a different time in health care. At that time Holzer Hospital and Holzer Clinic we’re separate. Holzer clinic was for profit and Hospital was traditional non profit. They are now one institution that falls under a hospital situation and non profit. Obviously, hospitals are struggling, especially small rural hospitals. At that time, there was money for Gallipolis also. Several delays changed the situation. Basically the delays at the wrong time caused Holzer Health Systems to have to back down. I have heard that Point Pleasant also had a major donation from AEP and a local foundation.
