Roosevelt's National Night Out celebration earns award

National Night Out at Roosevelt.

Hundreds of families gather at Roosevelt's National Night Out.

Roosevelt High School has won a National Night Out 2013 Award, earning second place in the Schools (elementary, middle and high school) category. For the past 30 years neighborhoods have come together to celebrate their unity with National Night Out events throughout the country. Along with great food and plenty of fun, these events increase awareness of neighborhood crime and drug prevention programs.

Sponsored by community partner, Rackspace Hosting, the Roosevelt National Night Out event was a great success. The event has become a major tradition at the campus with 2,000 freshly grilled hotdogs enjoyed throughout the festivities, which included performances, games and activities for all ages.

The school will accept its award at the NNO 2013 Awards Ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., at the University of Texas at San Antonio – Downtown Campus.
