HJISD to Oversee Initiative to Help Recover and Rebuild Harvey Impacted Community Sour Lake, TX  On January 14, 2019, HJISD announced a $348,334 grant from the Rebuild Texas Fund to help with Harvey related expenses. The Rebuild Texas Fund was launched just days after Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas communities. A collaborative project of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and the OneStar Foundation, the initiative is dedicated to the economic recovery of hard-hit Texas communities. Funded organizations such as Hardin-Jefferson, play a critical role as rebuilding continues in the community. “We are grateful for the Rebuild Texas Fund’s dedication and passion for rebuilding and revitalizing communities, including our own Hardin-Jefferson community impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said Interim Superintendent Dru Mushlian. “Through this generous grant, we will be able to recover some of the district money spent on the new Henderson Village, which is our temporary middle school campus.
