My Students

HCP students are some of the hardest working kids in the state of Oklahoma. They go above and beyond in the classroom, to prepare themselves for college. Harding is by far the best public high school in the state of Oklahoma, our athletic program is struggling with the budget cuts across the state. We have to fund raise for all our equipment necessary and I can't afford to purchase them out of my pocket. These kids really cherish the little things that make a big difference and do more with less than schools in the area.

My Project

Our kids are in need of some new basketball for this years upcoming season. Oklahoma requires that all OSSAA schools play with the Wilson Wave Solution ball. These cost of these balls is such that we don't have enough to purchase new one for this year. Our girls team only have 5 usable wave balls for practice and games, and our boys team is needed to replace some of their older balls that have started to wear out. Our players would love to have new balls to practice with as well as to use in in games. Thank you in advance for your support.
