The Dow High Turf Field is Almost Here!

The Dow High turf team has raised over $1.5M, making the dream of a turf field very close to becoming a reality. The final stage of the project, which will include lights so the field can be used at night, will require an additional $70,000.

This first class video, put together by Dow High student, Maddy Estes, is a testament to the amazing athletes, coaches, musicians and traditions that have been a part of Dow High School for over fifty years. Please enjoy watching the clip below and seeing names and faces of Dow High greats over the years, and then consider making a donation to this worthy project. Every dollar counts!
