East Alton-Wood River High School is getting much closer to having the funds to replace a marquee out in front of the school.

East Alton-Wood River High School Superintendent John Pearson said the district has about $20,000 that has been raised through the East Alton-Wood River Foundation toward purchase and installation of a new marquee.

“We are trying to raise $5,000 more to cover our final costs,” Pearson said. “It would be nice to get the new marquee and update things in real time like a lot of schools and churches do.”

The new marquee will go where the old one is presently positioned, Pearson said.

“It would probably be a wireless thing,” Pearson said. “We wouldn’t have to bury cable. We could update things all the time. “
