GALLIPOLIS — Gallia Academy High School’s Class of 1964 recently donated to the GAHS Stadium and STEM Project.

Tom Tope suggested a goal of $1,000 for the class and challenged other classes to match the goal.

“We are so proud to announce that our amount far exceeded our goal and we are able to donate to the (stadium and STEM project) the amount of $2,600,” the class released in a statement. “Again, we would like to challenge other classes to do the same and be part o the plans for a wonderful football field and new stadium. The future of our children and grandchildren will benefit greatly from this new venture… The GAHS Class of ‘64 is honored to be a contributor to this investment.”
