Cape Girardeau – The Cape Central Junior High School Tigers have two new state-of-the-art gymnasium scoreboards thanks to the Electrical Connection. The Electrical Connection – a partnership of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) – donated and installed the $15,000 scoreboards. The scoreboards will be used for wrestling, volleyball and basketball games.
“The Electrical Connection and its members are first class,” said Terry Kitchen, athletic director for Cape Central Junior High School. “They’ve not only done excellent work for our district, but are dedicated to improving our school community. We’ve got the best scoreboards in southeast Missouri because the Electrical Connection’s generosity.”
Kitchen pointed out that Electrical Connection members not only supplied the new scoreboards, but also donated services to help install the new scoreboards and move some older scoreboards to a smaller gym.
“We look forward to the Central Junior High Tigers lighting up victories on the scoreboards for years to come,” said Jim Curran, executive vice president of the Electrical Connection. “The scoreboards are our way of saying thanks to the Cape Girardeau School District which has relied on our highly skilled and safe contractors and workforce for a number of successful projects in the district.”
Curran also complimented Total Electric’s Danny and Rodney Miller, the electrical contractor, and IBEW Local 1 Business Representative Lee Asher for excellence and dedication for the installation of the project.
