Heroes Among Us: Featuring GHS Fishing Team Captains

The "Heroes Among Us" story series is released twice monthly,featuring local heroes and organizations that exemplify the Totally Texas, All American spirit that is the fabric of the Gainesvile community. Stories are contributed by the City of Gainesville, Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, Gainesvillle Economic Development Corporation, GISD, and NCTC.

High school is one of the final steps in preparing our youth to enter the real world. During these four years parents, teachers, coaches, and principals work together to help guide impressionable teenagers down the path to becoming responsible and productive adult members of society. One of the unsung heroes in this equation is the great community of Gainesville in which these students reside, full of citizens devoted to ensuring the present and future success of the students of Gainesville High School.
