The Battle of the Axe rivalry is one of the oldest in Texas history. Each year, the football teams from Sherman and Denison High School compete for the title and bragging rights in the Sherman & Denison communities. In 2008, Presco announced plans to sponsor an annual scholarship in honor of the long-time Texoma tradition. A $1,000.00 scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior who plans on furthering their education in either engineering or manufacturing from both Denison and Sherman High School. In addition to the scholarship, Presco donates custom printed flags and barricade tape toward the fundraising efforts of both schools. Our employees also participate in the can food drive associated with the Battle of the Axe. In 2008, our employees donated over 1,000 cans! For more information regarding this scholarship, please contact Human Resources.
