Emerus Community Hospital representative Lindsay Borras donates a stack of the 1,000 homework folders to J.L. Lyons Elementary Principal Tammy Haley.

HOUSTON – November 9, 2015 – For the 850 students at J.L. Lyon Elementary in Magnolia Independent School District, having homework folders was a little luxury they had been without the past few years. But that quickly changed Wednesday when Emerus Community Hospital in Tomball representatives showed up with cases of red-ribboned bundles of customized homework folders.

“We are so blessed to have a community partner like Emerus,” said Principal Tammy Haley. “The staff is excited to have official Tuesday folders that represent the pride we have here at Lyon Elementary.”
