The field dedication is the completion of this project.
In attendance at the event were members of the East Cleveland Board of Education, Mayor Brandon King, Ohio Senator Kenny Yuko, and representatives from the Cleveland Browns including players Greg Newsome II and Johnny Stanton IV, and executive vice-president of the Cleveland Browns and member of the Cleveland Browns ownership team, JW Johnson.
The new Shaw Stadium will host a variety of district events including varsity and junior varsity football games, varsity girls soccer games, district field day events for all students, and Shaw High School commencement activities. The district also plans to use the stadium for music performance events and community gatherings.
