In the Fall of 2002, Toyota Motor Manufacturing announced that a new plant would be built in San Antonio, Texas. The 2,000 acres purchased for the giant Tundra Plant would be located entirely in the Southwest Independent School District on the southeastern corner of the boundary.
True to their belief in being a good neighbor, Toyota has partnered with the Southwest District in many areas. Southwest students played a big part at the official groundbreaking on the site, serving as the spirited Mariachi greeting, performing a special cheer, the choir from Big Country performed, and FFA students packaged trees for guests; High School students suggested the name Lone Star Boulevard for the street near the Plant. Toyota officials serve on the Education Foundation Board and have been an integral part of many activities here at Southwest.
Friday night, November 2nd, we would like to publicly thank Toyota Texas for their dedication to the Southwest School District and for being a good neighbor and great corporate sponsor to the Southwest Community. The gift of the computerized Scoreboard with Message Center is one more example of the generosity of the Toyota Team here in San Antonio.
Join us in thanking Toyota for the new computerized Scoreboard with Message Center
