Roofing for a Cause: Sherriff Goslin Teams Up with The Turn 2 Foundation

Posted: in

At Sherriff Goslin, we believe not just in building strong roofs, but also in building strong communities. We are thrilled to share the inspiring collaboration between our roofing company and local foundations dedicated to nurturing active and healthy lifestyles for children in Michigan. 

Through our joint efforts with the Turn 2 Foundation, we are making a meaningful impact on the well-being of children, encouraging them to embrace active living and fostering a brighter future for the next generation. 

Revitalizing Our Home Field: Transforming High School Baseball Fields for a Brighter Future

Sherriff Goslin was honored to help sponsor an undertaking with the Turn 2 Foundation to create high-quality recreational areas to support local children’s baseball teams. The project included renovating and reorienting Kalamazoo Central High School’s baseball and softball fields and installing new seating and dugouts. 

The fields now have new synthetic turf outfields, clay infields, and a newly implemented sub-base and drainage system, One of the most exciting features of the updated fields is their altered layouts, which now position the batters to face the pitching mound in the northeast direction. This new orientation aims to reduce the effect of the low angles of the afternoon and evening sun on the players' ability to see.

Other improvements include:

  • Elevated aluminum grandstand bleachers 
  • Dugouts made from pre-cast concrete 
  • Galvanized fencing, along with a backstop and foul poles
  • Freshly built media booths

The scope of the project encompassed a practice field made of natural grass, as well as the provision of restrooms and parking that are accessible to all.

According to KPS Superintendent Dr. Darrin Slade, the recently revealed fields at Kalamazoo Central High School represent ambition, dedication, and backing from the community. Dr. Slade also mentioned that this advanced facility provides students with a place to refine their abilities, promote collaboration, and cultivate young athletic excellence

The Turn 2 Foundation: Empowering Youth, Building Futures

In 1996, while playing for the New York Yankees, Derek Jeter founded The Turn 2 Foundation. Their goal is to assist young individuals in achieving their maximum potential by implementing and backing projects that foster leadership growth, academic success, positive conduct, healthy habits, and societal transformation. 

The foundation was established with the initial aim of making a positive impact in the local community, just like Derek is currently doing in his own hometown. The foundation has provided children across the country with safe spaces to play, learn, and engage in STEM activities through parks, programs, and STEM Centers.

One of their initiatives, Jeter's Leaders, is a four-year program for high school students in West Michigan and New York City, catering to students from Kalamazoo Central High School. Through the Jeter's Leaders program, they strive to provide the local youth with valuable opportunities to excel and reach their full potential.
