The Sumner County Board of Education voted 10-1 Tuesday night to proceed with the agreement with the City of White House to acquire Dewey H. Whitson Stadium inside of White House City Park, which would be deeded to Sumner County Schools.
The next step is the approval of the County Commission and if approved, the stadium would become the property of Sumner County Schools. The City of White House would continue to own and operate White House Municipal Park surrounding the stadium, with easements provided and agreed upon for access to the stadium.
The proposal has been approved by the City of White House and the Sumner County Board of Education.
