The renovations come in part from a $500,000 donation from the John H. Schnatter Family Foundation. Schnatter is the founder of Papa John's and Jeffersonville High School alum. 

“To affect change you have to be willing to do better by raising your standards and overcoming the barriers that limit your potential. When I played baseball for the Jeffersonville High School Red Devils we raised our standards and removed the barriers that limited our potential. It is my hope that the John H. Schnatter Stadium will help this generation and future generations remove the barriers and that hold them back so that they can reach their full potential and be better," Schnatter said via press release. 

The Greater Clark Co. School Board voted on accepting the donation from the foundation on Oct. 15 and the renovations are set to be finished by April 2020.
