Burnet CISD athletic department receives $10,000 anonymous donation

JENNIFER FIERRO • PICAYUNE STAFF

BURNET — A $10,000 anonymous donation to the Burnet Consolidated Independent School District athletic department will be used for improvements at Bulldog Diamonds.

BCISD business manager Sarah Cervi asked the BCISD board of trustees to approve accepting the donation during the regular meeting Nov. 18 in accordance with a board bylaw, which stipulates the members must vote to accept donation more than $5,000.

“We won’t do anything until planning has been brought to you,” she told the board members.

Staff members will assess the needs of the facility, which houses the baseball and softball fields and the concession building.

“We’ll have some ideas on what the money can be used for,” athletic director Kurt Jones said. “When you get that kind of money, that kind of gift, it’s up to us to decide how that money is used.”
