City of Girard rebuilds big "G" sign

Posted: Updated:

GIRARD, Ohio - A symbol of school spirit replaces a damaged sign left behind by vandals at Girard's football stadium.

The big "G" sign, which is a source of pride for Indians fans an alumni, was replaced by a new, more durable sign Friday afternoon. It took 19 pieces of wood to build the first replicate that's now in place until a new steel sign is delievered in a couple of weeks.

"You saw the community just rally around and got that "G" in place in less than four days, ready to go and painted and ready for tonight's game," Superintendent David Cappuzzello says.

Once the steel sign replaces the new wooden sign, Cappuzzello says they've found a way to use the wooden one for a good cause.

"We're hopefully going to move this one in front of the high school and maybe do a memorial for some of the students that maybe left us too soon," he says.

Tony Guerriere and AJ Construction, Joe Scarneccia, and Nick Cochran and his coaches worked on the project.

Girard police are expected to wrap up its investigation into the vandalism by early next week.
