A Note From The Superintendent's Desk -
How would you like your family name remembered within our community? The Mt. Olive School District is offering a unique opportunity to help raise money for our extra-curricular activities.

The district will consider selling naming rights to the football field, high school gym, grade school gym, track, and baseball field. This would mean every time we refer to a football game we would refer to it as: (Example: The football team played their first home game at (Insert Your Name Here) Football Field in Mt. Olive.)

The minimum donation for naming rights of a field or gym will be $25,000. The name will remain for 25 years.

The district will be accepting formal bids for the naming rights until August 22, 2016. If you are interested in this once in a lifetime opportunity, please email Patrick Murphy, Superintendent at or call 217 999 7831 for further information. Thank you in advance for supporting our schools.
