"We're still the only high school in South Dakota that has a system that's similar to ours," said Aberdeen Central High School athletic director Gene Brownell.
When the concession stand is operated by Central athletic boosters, the parent-teacher association or the music boosters, only Pepsi products can be promoted. The exclusive agreement results in rebates being given back to the school for each unit sold, Brownell said. "You make a profit from the selling of the product, but you also get a rebate at the end of the year for each case of soda or water that was delivered and sold," he said. The support is two-fold, Brownell said. In addition to exclusive access to the concession stand, vending machines in the school are stocked with Pepsi products. Like with the scoreboard project, Pepsi makes donations to the Aberdeen Public Schools Foundation. "For the foundation to have a partner that is as strong as Pepsi is a great boon," Brownell said. "Otherwise, we would not have these benefits." No one else bid for the pouring rights when the contract last expired, so Pepsi has remained the school's partner, he said. "Pepsi has made a lot of donations in the way of product," Brownell said. "They've done a lot of things for us." That's not the case, though, Brownell said. "We encourage that the students buy a lot of water," Brownell said.
