Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy was alongside MPS Superintendent Dr. Keith P. Posley this week to break ground on the athletic field at Casimir Pulaski High School. The field will receive new artificial turf, goalposts, and soccer goals. The addition of synthetic turf at Pulaski will provide a safer facility for student athletes and will enhance the overall MPS experience.
MPS is proud that more than $250,000 in funding has been provided by the Green Bay Packers, the NFL Foundation, and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Milwaukee. This is the second grant made in Milwaukee by a partnership between the NFL Grassroots Program and LISC, designed specifically to build or improve football fields and neighborhood parks.
Athletics are an important part of the high school experience in MPS. Extracurricular activities such as athletics help promote student achievement and success. Playing sports has been shown to boost students’ confidence, teach discipline, encourage teamwork, and promote perseverance. Over the past five years, MPS has renovated athletic fields at Custer High School, South Division High School, and Vincent High School.
On behalf of all the students at Pulaski High School and the entire MPS family, we extend a heartfelt thank you to our partners!
Bill Molbeck joined TMJ4 Live at 12:30 to talk about the field renovations.
