The logo was removed last week and that decision has caused quite an uproar in our community. The board met for a couple of hours behind closed doors and voted unanimously to put the logo back.

Billy Weatherall, the owner of Christ Fit Gym paid the Benton High Booster Club $3500 dollars to have his logo on the field. Some complained about the logo and it was covered up. But Weatherall filed for a temporary restraining order and won. He told the court he had a contract and he wanted it fulfilled. Weatherall told KEEL News he was prepared to fight and said he just can not back down.

KEEL News reached out to the school board's attorney, Jon Guice, but he has not yet returned our call.
