PCC and City Track and Soccer Facility Progress is Making Strides

19 February 2019

Over the course of the last two and a half years, the Pratt Community College Foundation along with the City of Pratt have endeavored to build a Track and Soccer Facility adjacent to the Green Sports Complex (baseball and softball) on the southeast side of Pratt.

In addition to serving the local schools and PCC, the track will be available to host such events as AAU and Special Olympics meets and will also serve as a health and exercise venue for the public. The field inside the track will have an artificial surface that can be used by the PCC soccer teams, as well as Pratt Rec programs and the general public.

As a result of these efforts, the PCC Foundation secured a $1 million challenge grant provided by an anonymous donor, $600,000 in federal grants through the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism, a $250,000 gift from the Sunderland Foundation and many gifts and pledges from individuals. In January of 2019, we received a $150,000 anonymous gift and pledge from another foundation. This most recent gift was made in honor of PCC staff, faculty and administrators from past, present and future. A total of $2.25 million has been raised for the $3.5 million project.

“We would like to express our utmost gratitude to everyone who has helped us achieve this outstanding level of progress,” said Barry Fisher, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement of Alumni Relations.
