25th Anniversary of MHS 1994 Football Team Champion/State Playoff Team.
Dear Teammates, Classmates, Fellow Alumni, and Friends of Maumee High School:
On Friday, September 6th, many of us are returning home to Maumee to cheer on our hometown Panthers under the “Friday Night Lights” versus Sandusky Perkins High School. We’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of our 1994 football team’s league championship and trip to the OHSAA playoffs. What a trip down memory lane it will be.
While we most certainly will be reminiscing and telling stories about the “glory days,” I think everyone is just as excited to see first-hand the results of the Panther Pride Foundation’s Kazmaier Stadium renovation project. I first leaned about the project’s plans for the project in June 2017, when I had the honor to serve as the Honorary Event Chairman for the 25th Anniversary of the annual Richard Kazmaier Memorial Golf Outing. I was immediately impressed by the project, recognizing the need and related benefits. The initial $1.8M investment was a critical first step for the huge endeavor. It ensured that current and future Panthers would have the facilities necessary to support memory making on the field, the same or better opportunities that we all were afforded as MHS student athletes.
While the project has made great strides to date, already allowing current MHS student athletes to reap some of the benefits, there is much left to do in order to put the finishing touches on all aspects of the comprehensive plan. Some of the remaining tasks include finishing areas like the locker rooms, south entryway, and visitor amenities. The Panther Pride Foundation continues its fundraising efforts to complete these essential tasks.
I’d like to challenge all of you to join me in helping get this project “across the goal line.” Let’s band together as a team to ensure that there is an awesome backdrop to support the championship teams that are yet to come. This is our chance to assist in making memories for Panthers following in our footsteps, perhaps en route to a 25th anniversary celebration of their own.
