Major Donation to Stadium Project Final Phase

Donors Bill and Karen Veri, Boardman BOE President John Landers, Boosters President Bruce Flyak

The final phase of Spartan Stadium will include boys and girls locker rooms with a total of 134 lockers, a formal front façade with donor wall, concessions with eating area, public restrooms, and ticket booths.   The total cost of the third phase has been estimated at $650,000.


Donors Bill and Karen Veri call themselves big Spartan sports fans, as well as enthusiastic supporters of the Spartan Marching band.  Their $120,000 donation is the second time that they have been instrumental in the overall Stadium Project.  The Veri’s $150,000 donation in 2016 funded the construction of the “Home of the Spartans” Band Shell.  The couple lives in Boardman with their son Anthony, who attends Boardman Schools and is a member of the Spartan Marching Band.


“Community support continues to amaze us, and Bill and Karen Veri’s contributions have been vital in keeping the Stadium Project moving as we close in on the finish line, said Boosters President Bruce Flyak  “We want to remind everyone, about our locker campaign, and brick campaign, where you can also leave a legacy when you donate.”
