Thomas O. Hicks Elementary School History

Mr. Hicks was born in Houston, but spent most of his childhood years right here in the metroplex. By the time he was 13, Mr. Hicks was working in a radio station that his father had purchased. At age 15, he was a disc jockey making $20 a week. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in Port Arthur, Texas where he lettered in football. Mr. Hicks studied finance at the University of Texas, where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. He later went to the University of Southern California, where he earned a Master of Business Administration degree.

Today, Mr. Hicks owns over 400 radio stations. He is also Chairman of the Board and owner of the Dallas Stars hockey team, as well as the Texas Rangers baseball team. Mr. Hicks also serves on the Board of Directors of numerous cooperations.

We are truly thankful to Mr. Hicks for his most generous gift of this parcel of land to the Lewisville ISD, where we now have our beautiful school.
