De Soto – Thursday night, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind celebrated the reopening of De Soto High School’s football field, which was washed out in the floods of September 2016. Rep. Kind worked with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help replace the field, which required $500,000 in repairs.
“As a former high school quarterback myself, many of my favorite memories were made under Wisconsin’s Friday night lights,” said Rep. Ron Kind. “I am excited to see De Soto High School’s field repaired and reopened, and look forward to watching a lot of great football on their new field.”
Rep. Kind also presented a new American flag to the school, which was flown over the United States Capitol in honor of the reopening of the field.
