History of the Big Red Athletic Foundation


The Big Red Athletic Foundation was founded in 2010 by Athletic Director Tom Gladney with Pat Buchanan(President) and orignal board members Felix Gines, Dianne Holloway, Jim Howarth, Gavin Schmidt and Richard Schmidt to work with the Biloxi Public Schools Athletic Department to promote excellence in athletics for all sports programs between grades 7 and 12.

We work with the Athletic Department to help create an environment in which student athletes can compete at the highest level. Our mission is to provide each athlete with his or her best opportunity to earn an athletic scholarship to a school of higher education so they can further their education and enjoyment of athletics.

Our goal is to build continuing endowment that will help support all Biloxi Public Schools athletic programs, now and in the future, through the use of grants for items that are beyond what the school district or a booster club is able to provide. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation; so your contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible.
