Clinton High School could have new field turf at the high school football complex as soon as next fall and that has administration extremely excited.
Matt Koeppel - the school's athletic director - says they are going to start to think about designs and come up with something that will be one of a kind for Clinton
As Koeppel travels with the various programs, he's seen a lot of places that have good things going on and hopes to take a little bit of the best of what he's seen as the football complex gets developed.
For High School Principal Jerry Wayne, doing things right is his goal for his school and the district. He indicates it can be athletics or academics but he wants Clinton to be where people look to for how things are done right.
For Wayne, things can move much quicker if the district were to pass the one-cent sales tax, which could bring in around one million dollars per year.
For Koeppel, the one-cent sales tax is so ubiquitous in Illinois, it is hard to find a place you go where you are not paying it.
