GeorgeRanchHSIt has always been a belief on mine that before you can plan for the future you must first reflect briefly on the past. Please indulge me while I recognize two special groups of people.

First, our Inaugural Class of 2013 Student Athletes, without a shadow of doubt, these young ladies and gentlemen leave the “Ranch” in better shape than they found it. They have created legacies and traditions for our underclassmen to follow; legacies that include humility in victory, character in adversity, unwavering integrity, self-discipline, work ethic and accountability

Secondly, our outgoing & past GRHS ABC Board, this dedicated and committed group of professionals have created and provided the “blueprints” for the successful operation of present and future GRHS Booster Clubs. Last year alone, they created a new GRHSABC website that is second to none, awarded scholarships to our first graduating seniors, provided thousands of dollars in financial assistance to GR teams, and held a very successful “Boots & Bling” fundraiser.

For all their efforts over the past years, we offer our thanks and gratitude. Their efforts will ensure a bright future at the “Ranch” for the 2013-2014 calendar year and many years to come.

Speaking of the future, the mission of the George Ranch Athletic Booster Club is to support the GRHS Athletic Program so a well-balanced and diverse program exists to provide opportunities for all student athletes and strives to:

  • Provide support and assistance to the Longhorn student athletes and the athletic programs in which the students participate.
  • Enhance the image of the athletic organizations of George Ranch High School.
  • Create a scholarship program where as funds are generated in an effort to provide scholarships for outstanding seniors who have been representative of the high ideals of athletic competition of George Ranch High School.
  • The success of the Athletic Booster Club hinges around the support of parents and friends of George Ranch High School. Achieving this success starts with joining the Athletic Booster Club and getting personally involved in all sponsored activities.

Please join us in reflecting on a proud past to ensure a bright future, by joining the GRHS ABC. Please feel free to contact any of our Board Members should you have questions or comments. Volunteers are always needed and appreciated.

Welcome back and see you around the “Ranch”.
