Walla Walla School District officials said today that local businesses are being contacted by Sports Media of Omaha, Neb., about buying ads for Walla Walla High School sports poster schedules.
Walla Walla schools, however, have no affiliation with Sports Media and has not authorized such posters, spokesman Mark Higgins said.
People who have contacted the district say the sales pitches imply some of the ad cost will help support Wa-Hi athletics, he said.
“We don’t even know if these posters will even show up here. It’s just misleading.”
Walla Walla Public Schools encourages local businesses to contact the Walla Walla High School Big Blue Boosters to learn about opportunities available to support local Walla Walla High School athletics.
