Coast Central Donates $6,000 to Northern Humboldt High School Projects


Coast Central announced that Arcata High and McKinleyville High Schools recently received donations for athletic projects through its sponsorship program.

Arcata High had requested funds for a new portable scoreboard that could be used at all soccer and softball games.  Principal Ron Perry stated, “Our previous scoreboard was unrepairable, and a long-term replacement could not be installed in time for our girls’ softball season this year. Additionally, our soccer teams had never had a scoreboard.  Coast Central came through for our student athletes big-time.” The school received $3,000 from CCCU.

McKinleyville High had requested funds to improve its softball field.  Girls’ Softball Coach Drew Riddle had shared, “Our outfield had become a safety hazard that required numerous hours of maintenance every season.  The district had funded much of the field renovation, but funds were still needed for the softball area. We are so grateful for the $3,000 from Coast Central to complete the work.” The field is also used for the school’s PE classes as well as by Humboldt Fastpitch and the Lost Coast Chaos traveling softball team.
