Frey explained the sponsors will have their names on the scoreboards, on two-foot-high advertising panels.

The district also has received a $1,400 donation toward that project.

The athletic director said money also was budgeted to repair the boards. Those funding sources leave the district only $800 short of the $31,200 total. He said the Saucon Valley Athletic Booster Club will contribute that $800 if needed.

Frey hopes the scoreboards can be installed before the end of the spring athletic season.

Transportation secretary

Before the school board voted to approve the position, Wally Zimpfer, the district’s operations director, explained a transportation secretary is needed based on extreme workload.

He said the number of vehicles needed to transport students has increased from 30 to 46. In addition to transporting Saucon Valley students, he said those vehicles take more than 400 children to 31 non-public schools.

Zimpfer explained he is part of a two-person staff now responsible for transportation, maintenance and custodian personnel in the three-school district. He said in past years, five people handled all that work.

“I’ve really never asked for any help, but we’re in need of help right now,” said Zimpfer.

He said at times both he and Patricia Diehl, his secretary, even have to help drive.

“They put in more hours than we pay them for and they truly need some support,” said the superintendent.
