Hardy Telecommunications and Capon Valley Bank together will offer free admission to all Hardy County K-12 students for the upcoming Hardy Bowl high school football game featuring Moorefield at East Hardy.
Hardy Telecommunications and Capon Valley Bank are teaming up to pay for any student tickets for the October 18 game at EHHS Field. All Hardy County students in grades K-12 will receive free admission at the gate. Kick-off is slated for 7 p.m.
“Capon Valley Bank came up with this idea three years ago, and we at Hardy Telecommunications agreed it was a great way to ensure that all county students could attend the game,” said Derek Barr, Hardy Telecommunications director of customer service and sales, marketing and human resources. “Since then, we’ve continued to do it each year. We appreciate Capon Valley Bank thinking of this unique way to help Hardy County students.”
Hardy Telecommunications and Capon Valley Bank are both business partners with East Hardy High School, but Barr said the free admission is available for all K-12 students in Hardy County. The annual match-up of the county’s only two high schools is a countywide event, he said.
“We also really appreciate the cooperation of East Hardy High School as the host school,” Barr said. “They’ve worked with us to streamline the process. They’ve been really supportive in doing this for all students in the county.”
