Fighting To Keep A School Going

The cast members of Tyler Perry's "The Haves and the Have Nots" are set to join in the annual celebration of the Kashmere High School Homecoming Weekend, October 30-31, 2015.

Organized and fueled by the dedicated efforts of Conway Promotions and Kashmere High School Alumni, this year's celebration may prove to be the best! Hosted by Monie Love, the talents of Dana Dane and Vivian Green join together and welcome community supporters and area businesses for a great cause.

Beginning Friday, October 30th, cast members Angela Robinson ('Veronica Harrington'), Peter Parros ('David Harrington'), Tyler Lepley ('Benny Young') and Renee Lawless ('Katheryn Cryer') will speak to the students of Kashmere High School, join in the community's annual Homecoming Parade as well as attend two fundraiser mixers, dedicating funds to the purchasing of athletic, cheer leading and band uniforms and band equipment for the school.

Many Houston businesses including The Session TV Show, Just Omelettes Catering, Tour 18 Golf Course Houston, RCS Sports, and others, have contributed their support, sponsoring the weekend's activities.

A secondary, predominately African American high school in Houston, Texas that serves grades 9 through 12, Kashmere High School is a part of the Houston Independent School District.

Kashmere High, along with Jack Yates High School and Sam Houston High School, are the three high schools in Houston ISD which were consistently low-performing in test scores from 2001 to 2004. Because of this problem, there were movements to have the state or another organization take over the schools for a period so the test scores will be at acceptable levels.

While Yates got an acceptable rating in 2005, Sam Houston and Kashmere continued to get unacceptable ratings. In August 2006, the school learned that it again was getting an unacceptable rating from the Texas Education Agency. When the Houston ISD administration threatened closure if another "unacceptable" rating came the following year, the local community protested.

Today, the faculty, staff and students of Kashmere High School, continue to benefit from the community's efforts and doors of the school remain open. Those wishing to lend their support to the continued success of Kashmere High School, may purchase tickets or join in sponsorships. Tickets may be purchased via EventBrite
