Reasons for the Capital Campaign

We want to create well-rounded students who are intellectually and physically fit. A new track and synthetic turf field creates increased opportunities for students to participate in team sports and activities, build leadership skills and improve our physical education course offerings.


  • Focal point for Waynesboro.
  • Facility that inspires pride among students, staff and our community.
  • Field that is environmentally-friendly to conserve water, eliminate the need for fertilizers or pesticides and decrease maintenance costs.
  • Safe, high-performance playing surface.
  • Practice and game area for football, soccer, field hockey, track and community sports.
  • Performance venue for band, color guard and other musical events.
  • Multi-purpose playing field that can be used extensively, even in the rain and during months when grass doesn’t grow.

Why synthetic turf?

  • Grass has a higher rate of concussions, higher injury time loss, higher ligament and ACL tears.
  • Synthetic turf is a grass-like surface that replicates lush natural grass in appearance and function.
  • Synthetic turf provides a consistent year-round, all-weather playing surface, built to withstand extended use without downtime for recovery.
  • Upkeep of a synthetic turf field costs three times less than natural turf.
  • Allows for a multi-use facility that we can showcase the athletic and artistic talents of our students and community.
  • It will be a facility our community and students will take pride in.
