McKenzie is getting a makeover.

Evergreen Public Schools has announced that McKenzie Stadium will get a state-of-the-art playing surface this summer, in place in time for football season in the fall. The track around the field will be redone, as well.

Installation is set to begin in June, when workers take out the old AstroTurf to prepare for FieldTurf. The stadium is home to the four high schools that make up the district: Evergreen, Heritage, Mountain View, and Union.

“The superintendent and the school board agreed this is something they wanted to do,” said Steve Getsinger, director of school services for Evergreen Public Schools. “They just feel it’s the appropriate time.”
