JACK YATES HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC RENOVATION

We are pleased to announce that work will soon begin to resurface the athletic field at Yates High School because of funding from the NFL Foundation Grassroots Program, which is a partnership of the National Football League Foundation and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and the Houston Texans. Moreover, Commissioner Rodney Ellis was instrumental in the designation of Yates High School as the recipient of the artificial turf donated by the Houston Texans, Hellas Construction, Inc. and the Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation­-NRG Park.

 

The renovation of the field has many characteristics of a Comprehensive Community Initiative which organizes people and institutions dedicated to improving the well-being of individuals and families in distressed neighborhoods. Athletic fields serve as valuable community assets and offer opportunities for recreation, education, relaxation, as well as a place for student-athletes and coaches to train and enhance athletic skills and abilities.

 

Help us create a lasting, positive "impression" and address the shortage of clean, safe, and accessible football fields in the low-income community where Yates High is located. Click the button below to donate!
