Huntington High School Receives $3,500 Grant from Lowe’s for JROTC Obstacle Course
Huntington High School (HHS) has received a $3,500.00 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant for expanding its outdoor JROTC confidence obstacle course. 


The school’s grant application was based on the goal of improving the learning community at Huntington High. The obstacle course will be open to use by all students and the entire Huntington community.  The addition to the course will not only help JROTC cadets train for Radar meets; athletes and students can also challenge themselves in a different type of workout and measure their progress after each attempt.  


The money from the grant will help complete phase three of the obstacle course (5 new obstacles) and purchase directional signs for each station. The JROTC Leadership Academy has been working on this project for two years with planning, securing donations, and raising funds to purchase materials.  Last spring, construction began and will now continue with the help of the Lowes grant.  The third phase is expected to be completed by summer.  Advisory Board members of the Leadership Academy, along with JROTC Cadets, HHS staff and parents have helped with this project. 


“Our school and community will greatly benefit from the grant,” says Huntington High School Academy Coordinator John Tanner.  “We wish to thank our friends at Lowe’s for generously supporting this important project.  Students at Huntington High School and community members alike will have many different types of challenges to attempt with the obstacles being built in addition to six others already in place.” 

All K-12 public schools in the United States are eligible for the Toolbox for Education program.  More information is available
