Maryville University pours $105,000 into sponsorship deal that includes signs at Allen's Eagle Stadium
Have you ever heard of Maryville University? You will soon.
The Missouri private school is investing $105,000 in a three-year sponsorship deal at Allen High School, which includes signage at Eagle Stadium. Money from stadium sponsorships goes to the district's general fund.
"If you're a small private school in Missouri and you can basically have access, from an advertising standpoint, to students and families from Southlake and Plano and McKinney and Allen … then that's a good market," Allen ISD spokesman Tim Carroll said.
Allen limits sponsorships to one per category so Maryville will be the only university advertising at Eagle Stadium over the next two football seasons.
About 15 to 20 students from the northern Dallas suburbs enroll at Maryville annually
