Dr. Ricky Harris, superintendent of the West Orange – Cove Consolidated Independent School District, has announced that the press box at the football stadium and the Event Center will not be ready for football season.
He noted, “As with many other things affected by supply shortages due to COVID, we are experiencing the same issues. The press box and the Event Center have large curtain walls that are only made by one company in the US and number one in the world, Conair. The company experienced a supply shortage and now is experiencing a back order to go back to at least February of 2021.
We are hoping that they will arrive soon. In the meantime, we have no choice but to use the press box on the visitor’s side of the stadium again this year. Please be assured that we are doing all we can to prepare these facilities so our students, staff, and community can enjoy what they voted for.”
