Academy Sports + Outdoors partners with Terrell ISD to give 15 students back-to-school shopping sprees | Education


TERRELL, Texas (Terrell Independent School District) — Academy Sports + Outdoors has partnered with Terrell ISD to give 15 kids $150 shopping sprees to get ready for back to school.

On Tuesday, August 10, students had the opportunity to shop the Academy’s wide assortment of shoes, apparel, backpacks and more to help them get what they need for the school year. The store was closed so that the 15 students could shop before other customers entered the store.

“This is such an amazing gift for our students!” Superintendent Dr Georgeanne Warnock said, “We are so grateful to the Academy for this gracious gift to our students and the ExCEL facility! Academy also presented Terrell ISD with a $2,000 Academy gift card, totaling a donation of $4,250. The additional gift card will be used to purchase additional items for the children in the district. The Academy’s donation is one of many across the country to help children get back to school and back into sport this year.

“We do a lot of exciting things here at Terrell ExCEL and this donation will really help us champion student development,” said Anthony Knight, Director of ExCEL.

Thank you Academy Sports + Outdoors for supporting Terrell ISD students, and congratulations to the 15 students who were chosen for the exclusive shopping spree!
