Department goes with new company

The athletic department at WISD has contracted with Great Texas Sports to be the official calendar schedule company.

The representative made contact with sponsors last week.

In doing so, the athletic department found out that another independent company is presenting itself to be acting on behalf of the athletic department while soliciting sponsorships.

Kelly Publishing Co. is not representing the WISD athletic department.

The district encourages local businesses who have been contacted by Kelly Publishing to contact David Ream at 972-923-4606 or and disregard any attempts by them to invoice your business.
