ST. LOUIS – The Herculaneum High School Black Cats saluted the Electrical Connection for donating a new scoreboard to enliven football games. The digital scoreboard was dedicated on Sept. 6, 2019 prior to its football with Fredericktown High School. The scoreboard was installed by Schaeffer Electric and electricians from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1. IBEW partners with the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) to form the Electrical Connection.
“There’s always excitement in a new Herculaneum High School Football season, but new scoreboard brings added energy to the games, said Dunklin R-5 School District Superintendent Stan Stratton. “We are grateful to the Electrical Connection IBEW/NECA partnership for making our games even more memorable with the donated scoreboard. They are a great supporter of our school and community.”
Herculaneum High School has 440 students and is part of the Dunklin R-5 District, which serves 1,700 students in pre-kindergarten through high school. The Sept. 6, 2019 game had a disappointing outcome for the Black Cats as its record dropped to 1-1 with a loss to Fredericktown High School.
Members of the Electrical Connection partnership have proficiently installed a number of electrical improvements to schools in the Dunklin R-5 District. NECA contractor J.F. Electric is currently working on some electric upgrades for the district and in addition to its scoreboard installation, Schaeffer Electric has performed other work in the district. NECA contractors Aschinger Electric, Ozark Electric and Kaemmerlen Electric have also served the district.
