Each year, the Humble ISD Education Foundation hosts a golf tournament that raises funds for the school district’s teachers. The education foundation has recently announced that, despite some challenges taking place, it plans to host this event once again this year.
“The tournament will be held at the Kingwood Country Club Friday, Nov. 13. This year, the education foundation is implementing some unique features to the golf tournament to make sure it is fun and safe for all players and participants,” said Kiana Rios, communications specialist for Humble ISD.
To encourage social distancing, there will be scheduled tee times for teams instead of a shotgun start. Rios explained that as teams register, there will be an assigned tee-off time starting at 8 a.m. and moving throughout the morning every 10 minutes.
Additionally, according to the education foundation’s website, if unable to participate in the golf tournament Friday, one can still register to participate in the tournament and then schedule a tee time at Kingwood Country Club. When registering online, the player will inform the foundation if they plan to play Nov. 13 or at any time leading up to that day.
Daniel Contreras, chair of the Humble ISD Education Foundation’s Golf Committee, said, “I am excited to be chairing the foundation’s golf tournament this year. We have a great team of volunteers who are working hard to plan for a fun, yet safe tournament. School is in session which means our teachers need our support. Playing in this tournament is a great way to support Humble ISD educators.”
The proceeds from this event will support the continued ideas Humble ISD educators have which bring innovation and creativity into the classroom. “Because of you, students will be engaged in learning today to be better prepared for tomorrow,” said Rios.
“Humble ISD educators have creative ideas on how to teach in a way that gets kids excited about learning, but these creative ideas sometimes need additional funding. This is where the foundation comes in,” added Rios.
This charity tournament is critical to the foundation being able to help these teachers bring innovation to classrooms. “We are grateful for the sponsors and golfers who choose to play for a great cause,” said Jerri Monbaron, Humble ISD Education Foundation executive director.
“We have many opportunities for you to register. Individuals players, teams and sponsors are all welcomed,” said Rios. “So, what are you waiting for? Register and enjoy a fun day of golf — make a difference in the lives of our future leaders.”
