BAKERSFIELD - Bakersfield High School's aging stadium is getting a makeover and they want the community to help leave a permanent mark on Driller history.
Griffith Stadium was built back in 1923 and by law, it is entitled to modernization work through bond money.
The district has allocated about $20 million for the project but has only agreed to pay for a grass football field and a dirt track.
School administrators say they plan to raise another $1.5 million to upgrade to a turf field and rubber track.
The project will also add more seating, concession stands and restrooms.
The renovation is expected to take about 2 years. Construction will begin after the 2014 football season.
In order to raise money, BHS is selling ceramic tiles that will be mounted on a wall of the stadium.
The tiles start at $200 and $50 and will include the donor's name or business name.
