I am proud to have my name associated with this symbol of pride

To The Daily Sun,

Friday night's naming of the athletic field at Bank of New Hampshire Stadium — "Jim Fitzgerald Field" — in my honor was a humbling and greatly appreciated honor.

I would like to thank the "Silver Sachems" and all who helped make this wonderful athletic complex a reality. This athletic complex is a symbol of pride for the school and community. It will serve the youth of Laconia for generations to come and I am proud to have my name associated with it.

My 30 plus years at Laconia High School as football coach and athletic director were wonderful years. The friendships I and my family developed with players, parents, fans, teachers and the community will always be special in our hearts.

Thank you once again for this wonderful honor.

Jim Fitzgerald
