New Player Development Center Opens
A special thanks to everybody who came out to celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony and name unveiling of our newest athletic facility - The Rodney A. Harrison Player Development Center, on May 15.
This facility is named in honor of and in memory of the father of Kent Harrison, Mount Pisgah's Director of Athletics. Lead donors David and Kay Addaman believe teachers and coaches who model their Christian walk for students and athletes every day are priceless. The Addamans said they have seen firsthand the impact Kent is having on their children and it was obvious to them that Kent's dad was his role model. This gratitude led them to name the facility. It was a great day for Patriots baseball and softball. This facility will benefit our athletics programs for many years to come. 
We are grateful to the Addamans and the following donors for their dedication and support: 
Mark and Michelle Bartlett, Jeff and Diane Bostic, Les and Deb Brazzel, Brad and Rhonda Dalton, Paul and Janet Franz, Dick and Cindy Grapenthin, Jim and Mary Anne Gilvin, Don Harvey, Wade and Kelly Kruse, Grant Norwood, Joe and Lester Odachowski, Richie and Christie Peden, Brian and Molly Richey, Donny and Kelly Rolader, Geoff and Misty Rothermel, Mike and Julie Schertell, Mike and Laura Smith, Grant Thomas ('11), and Doug and Dianne Williams.
