BEEF to Host Tennis Tournament at Lake Belton High School

The Belton Educational Enrichment Foundation will host a tennis tournament at Lake Belton High School on October 17. 

Proceeds from the tournament will help the foundation continue to support students and teachers in Belton ISD through grants and scholarships.

“BEEF’s main purpose is to enhance the quality of education for students in Belton ISD,” said Allyn Testroet, BEEF board president. “We do that by providing scholarships to graduating seniors and grants to teachers.” 

Players can join the tennis tournament for a $100 donation which includes lunch, a sponsor sign and prizes. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Matches begin at 8:30 a.m. at LBHS, 9809 FM-2483 in Temple.

Registration is available online at https://bisdbeef.networkforgood.com/events/23194-beef-tennis-tournament-at-lake-belton-high-school

During the tournament, the district will also offer tours of the new high school to community members from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. A sign up for the 40-minute self-guided tours is available at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040a4aa4ad28a4fc1-tennis. In keeping with the district’s COVID-19 protocols, masks covering the face and nose must be worn while at LBHS. Distancing measures will also be in place during the tours.

Lake Belton High School, Belton ISD’s second comprehensive high school campus, opened this fall as the final and largest project funded by the May 2017 bond program. In approving the $149.7 million bond program, voters recognized the district’s continued fast growth and ultimately supported more opportunities for kids. 

“The community made this incredible school possible, and I can’t wait for them to have a chance to get inside and see what we’ve built,” said Jill Ross, LBHS’s principal. “We’re grateful to live in a community that values investing in education and our schools and hope they are as proud of the facility as our students and families are.”

This year Lake Belton High School serves more than 900 ninth- and 10th-grade students. When the first class of Broncos graduates in 2023, the campus enrollment is expected to exceed 1,800 students with a district-wide enrollment of more than 4,000 high school students.

Anyone interested in helping BEEF’s cause can donate by visiting www.beefbisd.org or by mailing checks to “BEEF” at 400 N. Wall St. in Belton.
