300 SAF Message
Dear Spartan Supporter,
As you know East Ascension High School over its storied 40+ year history produced numerous civic and community leaders, such as yourself, that have positively influenced our community, parish, state, and country. Our alumni encompasses military service members, engineers, doctors, lawyers, blue collar workers, police officers, FBI agents, elected officials, professional athletes, business entrepreneurs, and the list goes on.
It is recognized that extracurricular activities in high school play a huge role in the success of students and, in particular, the extracurricular activities of the student athlete. Through the participation of athletics the student is exposed to the positive concepts of team work, discipline, character, perseverance, and forming life-long relationships. The academic rigor along with the positive reinforcement learned through athletics is, and has been, a main stay to the success of East Ascension High School’s rich tradition and excellence.
In an effort to continue the success of the next generation of leaders produced by our beloved East Ascension High School, we have chartered a support organization for the student athlete and the athletic program for East Ascension High School, called “300 Spartan Athletic Foundation”. The “300” name is based off the Greek/Persian battle of Thermopylae where 300 Spartans stood strong against the invasion of 100,000 Persian troops.
“Our mission is to stand strong to support the Spartan student athlete so they will be prepared for the challenges of life, which are taught through the participation and rigors of academics and athletics.”
"300 Spartan Strong"
