Facelift Begins At Rose Stadium

  With a new name and a new image, the facelift at Rose Stadium is underway. Representatives from the Tyler Independent School District and Trinity Mother Frances Health System broke ground today on what will become the new, Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium. The project is being funded entirely by the nearly $2 million Mother Frances donation.

"Due to the funds coming to us in this agreement," said TISD Superintendent Sr. David Simmons, "we'll be able to improve the restroom facilities, the concessions areas, and expand the dressing areas for the teams, bringing the infrastructure of this facility up to the playing surface."

The project is scheduled to be complete by the start of the football season this fall.
