Friendswood High School PTO

Where Champions Walk the Halls

Academic Banquet

Well this has been a tough year for Friendswood. Many families have been living out of hotels, trailers, and gutted homes. Their belongings were washed away by Hurricane Harvey. These families are now in the frustrating process of reconstruction.

However, through all these challenges, our Friendswood High School students have not faltered in their pursuit of academic excellence. This year, more than any other in the past, these students deserve their dedication to be recognized and rewarded. Attaining excellence in the face of adversity is truly to be admired.

The Academic Banquet is the big event of the school year which recognizes these top academic scholars, UIL participants, Academic Decathlon and Octathlon teams. Every effort is made to create a memorable event that demonstrates to these exceptional young men and women that they are cherished and appreciated by their community.

These students look forward to this banquet. It is more poignant this year as the challenging events early in the school year make them even more deserving of a little sparkle and shine to look forward to. It is our opportunity as a community to recognize them for their efforts to maintain the exemplary academic standards set by our state-recognized district.

Funds are needed for this event! Our goal is $14,000 by April 16.

These funds will be used to cover the costs of the students’ banquet tickets. Please help us meet our goal with a donation. You may contact FHS PTO co-chairs Hillary Rosenthal (775) 225- 0669 email at or Rose Presley (281) 638- 4978 email for additional information.

Checks may be made payable to Friendswood High School and mailed to Academic Banquet, c/o FHS Library, 702 Greenbriar Ave., Friendswood, TX 77546.

We thank you for your consideration. The students will be grateful for your generosity.
