Waxahachie ISD will celebrate and dedicate the newly renovated Stuart B. Lumpkins Stadium this evening. The dedication is set for 8 p.m. with gates opening at 7 p.m. for all Waxahachie community members and Indian fans. Dedication attendees are asked to enter on the home side through the north gates. Seating is first-come, first-serve.
The dedication will feature several highlights including a dedicatory speech by Stuart Lumpkins Jr., words from current head football coach David Ream and the return of more than 125 alumni football players and coaches.
Former head coaches Jack Moss, Jerry McLemore, Scott Phillips and Thomas Brooks will be in attendance for the event.
The stadium was named for former WISD school board president Stuart B. Lumpkins.
Lumpkins was first elected to the school board in 1957 and served as president from 1961 until 1971, when he resigned due to illness. In May 2010, the current Waxahachie ISD board of trustees called for a bond election that would allow for expansion and renovations to the stadium.
Indian fans and community members will enjoy a newly renovated Lumpkins Stadium that will include seating for 10,000, conveniently located restrooms, concession stands, new athletic locker rooms and an expanded press box.
Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the office of public relations at 972-923-4631.
