Support the Court plans dedication of Owen Onsgard Memorial Courts in Houston


Mon, Jun 22nd, 2015
Posted in All Education

Support the Court, a Houston, Minn. community group, will present a completed multi-use sports court to the Houston Public Schools at the court adjacent to the Houston Elementary School on Wednesday, June 24 at 6 p.m.!

The facility, Owen Onsgard Memorial Courts, is named for the Houston community member who originated the idea of renovating an old, unusable tennis court and gifting it to the schools. Owen’s dream began in March of 2013. While Owen was fighting prostate cancer, he formed a committee and led fund-raising efforts. The court surface and basketball equipment were installed shortly after Owen’s death in spring 2014.The final phase of construction, including new fencing and signage, was completed this spring, all made possible by grants and generous donations made by individuals, community groups, and individuals from Houston and the surrounding area.

Owen’s legacy of a beautiful and functional court is a testimony to his love for Houston. The public is invited to attend the dedication as Owen’s wife and son, Lisa and Odin, officially hand over the court to Houston Public Schools.
