Clemson Trustees Approve Construction Contract
CLEMSON, SC -- The Clemson University Board of Trustees today
(March 22) approved a $1.6 million contract for improvements
to the east end zone of Memorial Stadium.
Meeting by telephone, the trustees awarded the contract to
Sherman Construction Company Inc. of Greenville.
The project is the first phase of a larger plan for various
football stadium renovations.
The work in the east end zone will include regrading the
area, modifying the handicapped seating section, building a
brick and wrought iron fence and entry gate, and installing
a new sound system.
The east end zone includes "The Hill," a grassy slope that
is the site of one of Clemson's most cherished traditions.
The football team runs down The Hill to get onto the playing
field at the start of each home game. The Hill will continue
to be preserved and will not be harmed by the renovation
