Ed Mayne Stadium

The Mayne family was honored Friday night, September 19, 2008, to attend the naming of the Hunter High football stadium Ed Mayne Stadium. It was a beautiful night as the Wolverines took it to and a beautiful ceremony as the Principal of Hunter High and Mike Fraser lit up the score board and introduced Karen Mayne.

Thank you so much to all those who helped make this happen and donated time and money. It’s so sweet.

The family of Ed Mayne is likely standing proud tonight, but don’t be surprised if you see some tears, too, as they realize our former legislator’s name will live long after he did.

We can’t rename Hunter High, but giving the football stadium his name seems appropriate. Besides everything mentioned earlier in this program (Page 2), the Mayne family aslo gave to help several other Hunter Sports, like the equipment for the volleyball team, the installation of the softball field and the dugouts on the baseball field.

The equipment and additional facilities made Hunter more competitive, and he was proud of the school’s successes, especially when the Wolverines captured the 2003 state football title.

That year, Ed had West Valley sign and declare a day, “Hunter High Football Day.” He presented the championship team to the Utah state senate and had the players do the Haka” in the Capitol Rotunda.

Ed and his family also founded the “Mike Fraser unsung hero” scholarship given to one female and male athlete from Hunter each school year.

Starting today, this is Ed Mayne Stadium.

So, what makes this game a special event? Hunter High will rededicate its home field and call it “Ed Mayne Stadium,” after the former West Valley City legislator who died last year at age 62. A special ceremony is planned at halftime.

The Mayne family lived in the Hunter area, an two of the children, Paul and Jamie, graduated from Hunter. School officials said Ed and Karen Mayne were responsible for helping Hunter install lights on the field, the U.S. flag in the gym and countless other donations that they made anonymously.
