Public School Gets New Dacotah Bank Track

VALLEY CITY, ND – Valley City Public Schools superintendent Josh Johnson and Dacotah Bank’s market president, Dick Gulmon, have jointly announced the new track and field at Hanna Field Athletic Complex will be named Dacotah Bank Track. For naming rights, Dacotah Bank made a significant donation to the multi-phase project as part of the overall $4 million improvement plan.

The local bank’s contribution helps fund the initial $500,000 phase which will include a new track, redesigned water drainage, and construction of an athletic fieldhouse. Johnson and Gulmon expect the first phase to be completed in August.

Johnson says the bank’s major gift goes a long way to complete phase one. “We appreciate the generosity of Dacotah Bank in supporting the new track at Hanna Field! We are working with Fisher Tracks for the surfacing of the new Dacotah Bank Track. The bank’s logo and slogan will appear on the track surface in front of the grandstand and elsewhere throughout the complex.”

Dacotah Bank has had a long relationship with the school and other non-profit organizations in the region according to Gulmon. “It’s been an honor to support Valley City Public Schools and the Hi-Liners over the years. Our company has a long-standing mission to give where we live and this collaboration demonstrates that well.”

Future phases will include new restrooms, locker rooms, a new ticket and concessions area, football field resurfacing with artificial turf, softball and football practice fields, and improved traffic flow with a new west parking lot.

Speaking on behalf of the fundraising committee, Johnson concluded, “These upgrades to Hanna Field will allow future generations of Hi-Liners to create their own Hanna Field experiences and memories – that is the ‘Restoring the Legacy’ vision.”
