|Wednesday, May 31, 2017|
Holman Middle School was selected to receive a $1,000 Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant from California Casualty. The funds will be used to purchase volleyball stands, uniforms and other needed items for the school's volleyball team.
Holman was one of 79 public middle and high schools in 33 states awarded a total of $83,000 to aid athletic departments via the grant program, which is named after California Casualty Chairman Emeritus Thomas R. Brown, an avid sportsman who believes in helping more students learn valuable lessons of teamwork and confidence.
“California Casualty has been supporting educators for more than 65 years, and we understand the correlation between participation in sports and higher performance in the classroom,” said Doug Goldberg, senior vice president. "Statistics show that student-athletes have higher test scores and are much more likely to attend college."
