Sharyland ISD Athletic Director Richard Thompson gave his approval Wednesday on completion of the baseball field area at Pioneer High School, which has been under construction since last year. With the exception of minor projects such as tubing on the fence and a storage unit, the field and dugouts are finished and will no longer be brought to the board for discussion.
“We need to move past some of these issues because we need to start thinking more about the existing buildings that we have – the conditions that they're in,” Board President Ricky Longoria said. “We need to start looking at the district as a whole. I’m hoping that after today we’re there.”
The board also did a walkthrough of the agricultural facility where Director of Maintenance Mark Dougherty gave approval of closure on the project, with the exception of other minor details.
