Insperity Adaptive Sports Complex Dedication Ceremony
On Saturday, March 24, Humble ISD staff, families, and community partners participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the new Insperity Adaptive Sports Complex. The Complex, located between Groves Elementary and West Lake Middle School, was built in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Houston, the Humble ISD Education Foundation, and the school district. It features a barrier free playground, large pavilion, and two fields specifically designed for wheelchairs and walkers for Miracle League games. These amenities allow children of all abilities to enjoy sports and to climb and play alongside their siblings and friends. Humble ISD owns, maintains, and utilizes the facility during the school day, and the YMCA uses the facility during the evenings and on weekends.
Participants in the dedication ceremony included Dr. Elizabeth Fagen, Humble ISD Superintendent; Dan Huberty, State Representative; Dave Martin, Houston City Council Member; Mark Koenig and Joe Cleary, Campaign Co-Chairs; Hugh Poland, Pastor of Woodridge Baptist Church; Paul McEntire, President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Houston; Chris Butsch, Community Executive Director of the Lake Houston Family YMCA; Jay Mincks, Executive Vice President of Insperity; Corrin Price, Executive Director of Insperity; Reid Ryan, Astros President; and Twila Carter, Executive Director of the Astros Foundation.
The first pitch followed the ribbon cutting, and the community enjoyed the playground, basketball courts, and several baseball games on the fields.
