Local family brings Brain 
Balance Achievement Center 
to Denton County

Brain Balance Achievement Center opened in November in Denton’s Rayzor Ranch Town Center.

“We are so honored and excited to bring this amazing program to the Cross Timbers area and surrounding communities,” Brain Balance of Denton owner Tammy Tubbs says. “After experiencing amazing results in our own children, we knew that we couldn’t rest until every family in our reach had an opportunity to seek help from the Brain Balance Program. By experience, we know how hard it is for the entire family when a child is struggling, but through the Brain Balance Program, we are able to get to the root of your child’s problem by identifying why he/she is struggling and then through a comprehensive, individualized program, we provide the solution!”  

Brain Balance is scheduling now. Call then today at 940.654.7870 to find out how they can help your child.

Brain Balance Achievement Centers provide a nonmedical and drug-free approach to overcoming the challenges of ADHD, learning disabilities, processing disorders, Asperger’s syndrome and a host of other related childhood learning, behavior and developmental issues.

First Ever Cross-Foundation 
Golf Event a Success

The Jim Collin/Steve Allen Memorial Golf Event, a joint effort by the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation (LEF) and the Denton Public School Foundation (DPSF), grossed more than $100,000 for student scholarships to be shared equally in both school districts. The event included a competitive golf tournament along with complimentary lunch, beverages, dinner reception and awards ceremony.

Denton Country Club played host to the first Collin/Allen Memorial Event in honor of two area businessmen, Steve Allen and Jim Collin. Allen, who unexpectedly passed away in 2016, was well known in the Lewisville ISD community and served on the LISD school board from 1986-1998. He sponsored numerous fundraising initiatives and charity events in the area. Meanwhile, Collin was a staple in the Denton ISD community. When he passed away in 2012, many of his friends at Denton Country Club established the Jim Collin/Denton Country Club Business Scholarship in his memory. Both members of the Denton Country Club, each seemed never to meet a stranger, loved people and enjoyed their communities. This year’s event and those to follow will ensure future funding of the Collin scholarship and will create a new scholarship in Allen’s name.

This year’s winning team was Certainty Home Loans with players Jim Juergens, John Aspinwall, Marcus Jones and Marco Scarola. Team Nelson finished in second place with Bonded Lightning Protection Systems finishing third.

Certainty Home Loans of Highland Village represented LEF and was awarded the Superintendent’s Cup, which will now stay in Lewisville ISD Superintendent Kevin Rogers’ office until next year’s event.
