Harlan Athletic Ad sponsorship unauthorized
April 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson
Officials with the Harlan Community School District say there are calls being circulated with regard for advertising on athletic posters. Athletic Director Mitch Osborn said in a press release a man by the name of “John Pennington,” is calling businesses to sponsor a poster of athletic schedules. Pennington contacted our sister station KNOD in Harlan on Tuesday, about purchasing an ad on the poster.
Osborn says the school has a partnership with the Harlan Newspaper and it is the only school sponsored athletic poster and schedule. The paper then contributes back to the school programs.
