Ground Breaking Ceremony 10/31/13

Councilman Oddo attended the ground breaking ceremony for a new field on the Staten Island Tech campus. This is the first time that I have participated in a ground breaking ceremony. 
29 McKee students were in attendance. The ring of balloons represents both school colors intertwined, which is just like the athletics programs. The colors of McKee are green and gold. The colors of SIT are black and gold. Both schools join together to put teams on the road. 

The new principal at SIT is Mark Erlenwein. Yours truly is on the left. It was a lovely day and the students, as always looked great. Get a look below of the "before picture" of the field.  I know there are proponents who feel strongly that it is great to play on a natural field. The coaches have stories, way too many stories, of what they had to do to make the field safe for the students to use.
