Brenham ISD Education Foundation receives donation from Courtland Sutton for school supplies
10/04/2019

Brenham High School alumnus and Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton presented a $5,000 donation to the Brenham ISD Education Foundation for the purchase of school supplies. Sutton graduated from Brenham High School in 2014 and played football for Southern Methodist University before being drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2018.


Sutton has a drive on the field, as well as a drive to help education in his hometown. While Sutton was entering the NFL in 2018, Brenham ISD was entering into a partnership with For the City, a local nonprofit organization, to organize a no-cost, back-to-school supply market to serve over 400 Washington County students in need. In 2019, the effort expanded to serve over 1,000 students and the district projects that over 2,000 students will be served at the 2020 market. Sutton’s contribution to the Brenham ISD Education Foundation will be used to replenish diminishing supplies in the district’s school supply market and ensure the success of future efforts.


On October 3, Sutton’s mother and Brenham High School alumna Phelicia Marshall visited the school supply market located inside the Brenham Community Education building. “As a family, we’ve made it a priority to help local students in need, and Courtland really wanted to give back to the children of our community and his hometown,” said Marshall. “School supplies are a necessity, and he is honored to be able to help provide towards this program.”
