There was a little added excitement to “Friday Night Lights” on August 26, 2016 in the Northwest R1 School District as the high school unveiled a brand new digital scoreboard made possible through donations from the Electrical Connection and other district partnerships. The scoreboard includes a state-of-the-art video screen and was installed by Piros Signs, Inc. with assistance from Five Star 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.
“The new scoreboard and video screen make our football games and other sports much more memorable for our students and parents,” said Northwest R1 School District Superintendent Dr. Paul Ziegler. “The Electrical Connection IBEW/NECA partnership has been a great supporter of our school and community. We are grateful for their generous donation and the reliability of their services.”
Members of the Electrical Connection partnership have proficiently installed a number of electrical improvements to schools in the district including new gymnasiums and library renovations at Murphy and Brennan Woods Elementary schools, as well as a variety of other projects. In addition to Five Star Electric, local IBEW/NECA contractors who have served the district include Sachs Electric Co., Eckelkamp Electric, and several other IBEW/NECA electrical contractors over the years. IBEW offers an electrical contractor hotline to help customers find reliable and quality electrical service providers at 314-932-6526.
