With a unanimous vote of 7-0, the Katy ISD Board of Trustees recently approved Legacy Stadium as the new name for the second stadium, currently under construction.
Additionally and as part of public recommendation, the field will be named after former coach Mike Johnston. The state-of-the-art, cost efficient, multipurpose school facility will open up in the fall of 2017, thanks to the 2014 voter-approved bond program, and it will be part of the Academy Sports + Outdoors Complex.
“It’s an honor to recognize all the former legacies which continue to inspire our students,” said Rebecca Fox, Katy ISD board president. “Coach Johnston is a perfect example of an individual who continues to pour out his love and dedication for the future generation.”
In February, the Second Stadium Naming Advisory Committee was tasked with identifying a suitable name for the stadium, which would align with the values and core believes of Katy ISD. The committee began with a solicitation of name nominations from the Katy ISD community, which was open from Feb. 8-17. After careful review, a recommendation was presented during the board of trustees work study meeting on Feb. 21.
