Portland High School Gym Gets Spirited Make Over
Portland Athletic Director Kevin Veale said that the idea for the graphics, “was originally brought to me about 7 or 8 years ago and I tried to get it going then but the economy was bad and I couldn't get enough businesses to pay for the advertisements. I really liked the aesthetics it provides and liked the idea so I tried again last year and it took off.”
Veale added, “The businesses agree to a five year deal and pay a certain amount per year for the spots. The first couple years pay for the wall wrap and then it turns into a fund raiser for us where the money goes to us after it is paid for. So not only does it add a lot to the appearance of our gym, but it raises money for our programs.”
