KEARNEY — A new all-digital video scoreboard is on the way to the Kearney High School gymnasium.
The new scoreboards are connected to a digital app that will track team scores, stats, rosters and schedules, expanding the digital experience to individuals at the gymnasium that hosts KHS volleyball, basketball, wrestling and a variety of community and NSAA events.
The digital scoreboards will allow multiple advertisers to have high-impact exposure during games and events.
“These boards are going to allow our business partners to showcase their products at an all-time new level, where they have the option to change their advertising message from season to season,” KHS Activities Director Ryan Hogue said. “The scoreboard advertising will create annual resources that will pay for the boards and support Kearney High School, Horizon, and Sunrise athletic departments.”
The current scoreboards will replace and upgrade the much older scoreboards at Sunrise and Horizon Middle Schools.
According to Hogue, the new scoreboard will serve as a platform for physical education teachers to show instructional videos, or for the school to show presentations during assemblies, pep rallies or a movie night.
“The opportunities and ideas are endless,” said Hogue. “These new boards are going to enhance the game atmosphere while also allowing us to showcase all of our student success stories.”
Kent Edwards, KPS Superintendent is excited about the opportunity to add the new technology to the Kearney High School gymnasium. He said the new all-digital scoreboards will offer Kearney High School students an educational opportunity to learn about digital technology and create video graphics.
“These are marketable, technology skills that students can apply directly out of high school,” he said.
The scoreboards will be installed this summer and be ready for the fall semester. Businesses interested in advertising on the boards should contact Hogue at firstname.lastname@example.org or 308-698-8066.
