L. Joeckel donates $125,000.00! to AHS!

heartAlumni News From Principal Jennifer Young:

I always tell people that AHS is a great school with outstanding students. I love it when our graduates do big things and represent us so well.

Luke Joeckel (Class of 2010) had his football jersey retired at an AHS pep rally this fall. Most of you know that Luke played football at Texas A&M, and last year he was the #2 pick in the NFL draft. He is currently playing football for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Recently, Luke donated $125,000 to AHS. $50,000 is dedicated for scholarships. Some of the money has been used to purchase lockers for the fieldhouse. The rest of the money is to be used to help our school and the student body.

When I last spoke to Luke he said that "AHS played a big role in helping me become the person I am today. I am so happy to have the opportunity to give back!"

How Sweet It Is To Be In Colt Country!!!!!!
