DDCE Diversity and Community Engagement Officer Vincent Young and other former Longhorn athletes who are members of the T-Association, helped raise more than $45,000 to serve nearly 6,000 Title 1 students in Austin Independent School District through the Neighborhood Longhorns Program. They participated in the 6th Annual Bowling Challenge held Feb. 20, 2016, at Highland Lanes in Austin.
NLP is an incentive program to help students achieve academically at high levels and provides the opportunity for numerous trips to the University of Texas at Austin campus throughout the year. Students get to attend athletic and cultural events, meet student athletes, and learn about the university. Special thanks go to 24-Hour Fitness, the exclusive fitness sponsor for the event, the Austin American-Statesman, AllState, Forestar, Tiff’s Treats, University Federal Credit Union and Louis Shanks Furniture.
