The New Mexico Activities Association and New Mexico Activities Association Foundation have each pledged $1,250 to the University Interscholastic League to help with ongoing Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Texas.
The University Interscholastic League is Texas’ governing body for high school athletics.
The devastating storm caused severe damage to more than 300 high schools across Texas.
The state association offices in Arkansas, Colorado and Oklahoma will also be providing $2,500 to the UIL to support the many schools and students affected by this tragedy.
New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Colorado make up what is recognized as Section 6 within the National Federation of State High School Associations. The UIL will be presented with a $10,000 check from their counterparts later this week during the NFHS’ Annual Section 6 Meetings in Denver.
In addition to financial support, and in conjunction with the NMAA and NMAA Foundation, Graphic Connection has pledged 15 boxes of apparel from the 2016-17 NMAA state championship season to the relief efforts.
