Hydrographic Society of America Donates $5,000 to Local Houston School Print E-mail
Written by Hydrographic Society of America   
Wednesday, 27 May 2009

Houston, May 27, 2009 The Hydrographic Society of America donated $5,000 to Holbrook Elementary in the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD district on May 21, 2009 in order to help further education in the Math & Science Department.

I think we should be proud that THSOA and its Houston Chapter are giving something back to our community, said Houston Chapter Chairman Rick Hagen.  This school not only deserved but needed this donation the most.

In 2007, according to the Houston Chronicle, there were 846 students enrolled at Holbrook.  57.3% are Hispanic, 29.7% are African-American, 10.3% are Caucasian, 2.6% are Asian and 0.1% are Native American. Out of the 846 students enrolled 77.7% came from low income households.

Individuals who would like to donate to Holbrook Elementary can do so by visiting the school website at http://schools.cfisd.net/holbrook/index.stm.

The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA) is a nonprofit organization staffed exclusively by volunteers in the industry whose mission is to promote education in hydrography.  THSOA was incorporated in the State of Maryland (United States) as a non-profit organization in 1984 and was granted 501(c)(3) status as a non-profit organization by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service in 1985.  THSOA serves as the focal point for activities in the Americas.
