FC Dallas Visits Fisher Elementary (September 10, 2007)

Nancy Lawson and Manuel Gonzalez with FC Dallas playersThe players and coaches of FC Dallas visited the students and staff of Fisher Elementary on September 7, 2007, to reward the campus for selling the most tickets to the FC Dallas Community Night at Pizza Hut Park last spring. Fisher Elementary sold the most tickets for the event that raised money for the Frisco Education Foundation and brought positive attention to the community as the game was broadcast on ESPN2, according to Principal Nancy Lawson.

After addressing the assembly to stress the importance of "initiative" in being a successful person, each player, the coaches, and team's general manager visited classrooms to sign photos of the team and answer questions from the students. To promote attendance, each student was given a free pass to the September 8 game at Pizza Hut Park: FC Dallas vs. Toronto FC.
