HENDRICKS COUNTY (Inside INdiana Business) – The Northwest Hendricks County School Corp. is partnering with State Bank in Lizton to provide exclusive naming rights to the football stadium at Tri-West High School in Lizton. The stadium will be called State Bank stadium.

The district says the five-year agreement was unanimously approved by the school board. The partnership provides financial support for the school district’s education foundation.

“State Bank has a long-standing commitment to and great reputation in the community, and we are pleased to have the hometown bank support the Tri-West School Community Schools and the students we serve,” said Northwest Hendricks County School Corp. Superintendent Scott Syverson.

The district says it is undergoing a stadium revitalization effort that is part of a $25 million athletic complex improvement project. It is expected to be complete by August.

The stadium will include State Bank signage on a new training facility at the north end of the field and on the press box. The school corp. says a new south parking lot with a State Bank gateway arch will also be added.
