Alvin ISD is set to host three building dedications in September. The first dedication is for the Roy Lee Powell Press Box and Bill Lewis Media Level of Alvin ISD Memorial Stadium at Alvin High School. Mr. Powell is a long time Alvin resident that has attended almost every game he can at Memorial Stadium.
“Mr. Powell is beyond what we call a fan. He carries a sense of pride for our district that is comparable to none,” said Mike Bass, Athletic Director for Alvin ISD.
If you have ever attended an Alvin ISD football game or listened to the podcast, the booming voice you hear is none other than Mr. Bill Lewis. Mr. Lewis has been the voice of Alvin ISD athletics for many years now with the opportunity to travel to the state football game when Manvel High School was playing for the title. Mr. Lewis remembers calling his two boy’s games when they played for Alvin High School years ago.
The dedication honoring these two men for their commitment to Alvin ISD will be held on Sept. 1 at halftime of the Alvin High School football game. A Community Tailgate, hosted by Alvin High School and sponsored by Joe’s BBQ, will take place before the game from 6:00 – 6:30 p.m. near the football field. Hot dogs and drinks will be provided.
Alvin ISD’s 17th elementary school, Shirley Dill Brothers Elementary, opened on Aug. 17 with lots of big smiles from both Principal Krystal Hawks and the students who were eager to start their learning. Brothers Elementary is named after one of Alvin ISD’s biggest supporters, Shirley Dill Brothers. Shirley dedicated over 40 years of her life to Alvin ISD and is very deserving of this honor. She was able to be at the campus on the first day of school to welcome the students to their new elementary school.
The Shirley Dill Brothers Elementary dedication will be held on Sept. 7 at 5:00 p.m., followed by their campus open house. Alvin ISD invites the community to join us as we honor Ms. Brothers for her many years of dedication and love to our district.
Pomona Elementary, Alvin ISD’s 18th elementary, is named after the new Pomona development off of Highway 288, where the school is located. The Pomona Pirates started their year of exploration off right with Principal Renea Rives greeting each student and family at the door for their first day of school. The pirates theme can be found in all areas of the campus and the staff is continually adding to this fun concept. The Pomona Elementary dedication will be held on Sept. 21 at 5:30 p.m. before their campus open house.
