Sterling (August 30, 2015) – Prior to the Park View High School football team’s first home game on their brand new turf field, the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation held a Play 60 combine for the local youth. It was also youth night for the local football league in Sterling.
There were several guests in attendance for the field dedication ceremony including former Park View principal Dr. Ginger Minshew, Sterling representative for the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Eugene Delgaudio, LCPS chief information officer Wayde Byard, LCPS supervisor of athletics Les Cummings and chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Scott York.
“I am honored and excited to be here for this special occasion, as Sterling Park was my first home,” Park View principal Kirk Dolson said. “My career started here at Park View as an English teacher and my first year as a principal was here last school year. I tell the teachers, athletes and parents that the sports field is an extension of the classroom.”
The final person to speak was the Redskins president Bruce Allen.
“The Washington Redskins and our charitable foundation are very proud to be your neighbor,” Allen said. “To be able to help out and build this great field for the young athlete — the students of Park View High School — makes us very proud.”
