The Big Red Athletic Foundation was formed with the vision of improving all athletic programs within the Biloxi School District in cooperation with the Biloxi High School Athletic Department. The goal is to provide each student athlete with
a competitive advantage at the local, district, and state levels.
The Foundation will work with the Athletic Department to promote excellence in athletics and create an environment that will encourage student athletes to compete at the highest level, affording each athlete the best opportunity to earn an athletic scholarship to schools of higher education. The Foundation has applied for, and expects to receive 501(c)(3) status, making contributions to the Foundation tax deductible.
