On January 22, Westbury Christian will host the Kinkaid School in a varsity boy’s basketball game, and in order to honor the impact Mr. Garrett had on both school communities, all gate proceeds will be donated to the Garrett family. We would like to invite the whole community out for a great night of basketball as well as an opportunity to give back to a family that has given so much to others.
Mr. Levy Garrett served several years as a coach at the Kinkaid School as well as with the Houston Lynx AAU team. Mr. Garrett also held a special place in the Westbury Christian School community being a Wildcat fan, supporter and parent, as his son Monice was a 2005 graduate. Mr. Garrett has touched the lives of so many youths in the greater Houston area. Through the game of basketball Mr. Garrett spread his infectious joy and love for life and kids.
Mr. Garrett was born on August 19, 1950 in San Antonio, Texas. He attended St. Phillips College and Texas Southern University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Respiratory Therapy.
