The FMH Foundation has awarded the Education Foundation of Odessa with a grant totaling close to $200,000.

According to NewsWest 9, the $180,000 grant given to the Education Foundation will go toward new uniforms for the OHS Marching Band.

“We are so grateful to the FMH Foundation for this special gift. With these funds, the students in the OHS band will be marching in style during the 2020-2021 school year! We want all of our students in Ector County ISD to feel confidence when they step onto the field to perform…whether it be at a game under the Friday Night Lights or at a competition. This grant ensures the students at OHS will have that confidence in the coming school year” said Celeste Potter, Education Foundation Director.

The uniforms are expected to be purchased soon to make sure they are ready to go for the next school year.
