Lowe’s employee and West Charlotte High graduate Corey Smith knows a little bit of everything about his alma mater’s old and crepid football field, “I can tell you exactly where every divot was in this field.”
Smith is one of nearly 150 Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers who renovated Jack Martin Stadium at West Charlotte High School, “I’m proud to say that I graduated from this great school, just the pride and joy that I had when I found out that Lowe’s would be a part of something so major – I really am glad that I was able to help out.”
Lowe’s partnered with the Carolina Panthers to complete repairs that enhanced the game-day experience for fans. Together, the Panthers and the NFL provided $250,000 in grants to assist the $2.1 million project, which provided the school a new football field, a new athletic track and new pride. Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers contributed over 1,800 hours to renovate the stadium.
