The Halifax County Public Schools Education Foundation recently donated a scoreboard to the Halifax County Middle School softball field.

The proceeds from the 2019 Jeff Nelson Memorial Golf Tournament provided the funding for two projects in support of interscholastic athletics including the scoreboard at the middle school. The foundation also was able to help fund the purchase of new pullovers for the Halifax County High School softball team.

“The HCMS athletic department would like to thank the Halifax County Public Schools Education Foundation for showing their support to our program by donating a scoreboard for our girls softball field,” Halifax County Middle School athletic director Justin Saunders said. “The HCPS Education Foundation continues to be a consistent supporter of the middle school and high school, and we are truly grateful for their tireless efforts,” Saunders added.

The education foundation made the presentation to Saunders and other HCMS staff on Tuesday morning.
