HORN ATHLETIC PROGRAMS RECEIVE GRANTS!

More great news for Horn PE teacher Jessica Taylor! Not only did she receive a wonderful grant from the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Lottery for $11500 to upgrade the weight room, she also recently received a tennis grant from the USTA (United States Tennis Association) to grow the program with new tennis equipment totaling $9000! This amazing opportunity will help the players in our programs to have better equipment with which to condition and compete. Congratulations to Ms. Taylor for seeking out these grants to help our students and finally, for the great honor of being chosen to receive them!
