PINE BLUFF — Simmons Bank on Tuesday announced a $2.5 million donation to the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff athletic department for football and baseball stadium improvements.

The university’s football stadium — to be renamed Simmons Bank Field — will have artificial turf installed and a new digital scoreboard added to its north end.

The donation, the largest in UAPB history, will also go toward completion of the Torii Hunter Complex, adding a new press box and concession stand.

The additions will be named the Simmons Bank Pavilion at Torii Hunter Stadium.
