CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) — Clayton High School will receive a big gift from a big name in the North Carolina community on Thursday.

In the midst of funding its $1.7 million athletic field renovation project, Clayton High School received a call from none other than the Carolina Panthers.

In a partnership with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the Panthers are donating a $250,000 field grant to the school’s project.

The project will convert the football field and adjacent practice field “to durable synthetic turf surfaces that will provide greater access and opportunities for school and community athletic teams,” according to an official release.

“The Carolina Panthers are excited to partner with the NFL Foundation and LISC to support the construction of new synthetic football fields for Clayton High School,” said Riley Fields, Panthers director of community relations. “The new fields will provide much-needed sustainable field space to support the needs of Clayton High School and the wider Clayton community.”

The check will be handed over at 6.45 pm. on Thursday in high school.
