[MENA] Beginning this Fall, things will sound a lot different and a lot better at Bearcat Stadium. The Mena Public Schools has announced that the Bearcat Foundation, Inc., has provided a “major upgrade” to the sound system at the stadium, according to Superintendent Benny Weston.
Weston said, “We are excited that the Bearcat Foundation and Boosters have given us the opportunity to upgrade the sound system at Bearcat Stadium. This multi-use facility is very important to the youth and community in our area. With the new sound system, all of the events at the stadium will become much more enjoyable for those in attendance. Another example that when schools and communities work together, great things happen for our kids.”
The benefits of this project will be far reaching and enhance many programs including soccer, football, track & field, graduation, Special Olympics, Mena Youth Football, and Fields of Faith, to name a few. The system will allow sound to be distributed in different ways to different areas of the stadium. The system has been custom designed, configured, and installed by One Source Innovations, Inc., of Ft. Smith.
Bearcat Football Coach Tim Harper says the upgrade is certainly needed and will enhance the fan and player experience at every event. He stated, “The Bearcats work hard to be their best on the field and I believe this new sound system will help our fans be their best in the bleachers.”
Bearcat Foundation board member Avel Mendoza added “this is all made possible by our members and generous supporters. This has been on our wish list for a long time and we are so excited to be a part of this much needed addition to Bearcat Stadium.
