The board of directors of the Houston Education Foundation (HEF) voted recently to donate $2,500 from its capacity fund to the Houston R-1 High School Gym Fund.
The fund was established to install a new speaker system in the high school gymnasium, which is sorely needed. Approximate cost for installation is $7,000.
Funds raised from the current HEF shootout, held at halftime of all high school boys’ and girls’ basketball games will also go toward this gymnasium fund. It is sponsored by First National Bank. Each ticket sold will be eligible for a drawing to take a halfcourt shot for $10,000 at the final boys’ game Thursday, Feb. 26, against Stoutland.
Any donations toward the gymnasium fund or to the Houston Education Foundation may be sent to HEF, P.O. Box 102, Houston, Mo., 65483
