The Cameron school board voted unanimously during a special meeting last month to call for a $5.65 million bond election on May 10.

If it passes, the money from the sale of the bonds will be used to renovate the C.H. Yoe High School's football field, repair the track and construct a new baseball field and four new tennis courts, Superintendent Colin Clark wrote in an email to The Eagle.

In a press release, Clark called the bond package an investment in future champions.

"I am proud of our school board's vision and most of all, our Yoemen athletes, the driving force behind this bond. Yoemen pride runs deep and is very evident in our community," he said.

The Yoemen football team captured back-to-back state championships the past two years. The baseball and girls track teams each brought home 2A state championships in 2011.

The recommendations for facility upgrades came from a committee of parents, school staff and community members. Clark said the district and trustees are excited about the opportunity to bring "much needed improvements and new facilities to our Yoemen athletes."
