New Football Stadium, Theater On Tap For MVTHS

(MT. VERNON, IL ) — A new football stadium and theater are set to be built in Jefferson County. Despite recent budget issues, school leaders at Mt. Vernon Township High School say they have enough money to build the two facilities. The two facilities will cost the school an additional $700,000. The football field and theater were considered alternate options just weeks ago. Both the field and theater will be fully equipped to meet the needs of students. The school is scheduled to open in fall of 2016.
