Peyton Manning to Speak at Graves High Next Year
By Joe Jackson
MAYFIELD, KY - Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is coming to Graves County. The future Hall of Famer will be the featured speaker at Graves County High School’s Eagles Nest April 20 as part of the 2nd Annual Night with a Champion.
The evening is a fundraiser for the Graves County Eagle Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 2010. The group, comprised of parents, community, business and educational leaders, helps bridge the gap between a decline in state funding and the growing educational and facility needs of students at Graves County High School
Last year, the foundation brought Jets quarterback Tim Tebow to Graves County. Through ticket sales and corporate contributions, the foundation raised more than $150,000.
The group presented a $100,000 check to the Graves County School Board Thursday night. The money will go toward rubberizing the track at the high school football field.
Ticket information for Manning’s visit will be announced at a later date. To learn more, phone GCHS athletic director Doug Gloyd at (270) 328-4884 or 674-4884 or email him at email@example.com.
