Community Effort Brings Sound Improvements to Schwartz Field

Those behind the installation of a new sound system at Cannon County High School gathered Monday to celebrate the success of their efforts. The total project cost was $13,314.  So far, stage one has been installed with stages two and three to follow.  The Cannon County School Board supported the project with $9,900 from capital outlay funds.  First National Bank made a donation of $3,000 to support the project.  The Cannon County Touchdown Club sponsored the remainder and will provide upkeep to the system. 

Ben Williams with Essential Audio of Nashville has provided the equipment and installation for this project. Stage one consisted of home side speakers and sound kit, including a microphone and space to run computers and additional microphones.  Stage two consists of a wireless microphone with long range antenna to service the entire complex.  Stage three consists of wireless speakers being mounted on the visitors’ sideline to provide adequate sound for events like graduation. 

Schools Director William F. Curtis said, “This was a joint effort on behalf of the Cannon County School Board, the Touchdown Club of Cannon County, and a generous donation from First National Bank.  This is a great example of the community coming together to fulfill a need at one of our local schools.”
