Frank D. "Poncho" Roberts was a beloved member of the community who truly enjoyed working with children. He is known to many people as Poncho, and for his phrase, "togetherness, one more time."
While at a Huntsville Lakers swim meet in Navasota with former City Manager, Bob Hart, he heard Huntsville parents expressing their desire for an aquatic center. He and his wife, Helen "Sugar", went back to Navasota to visit with the City Manager, and discussed how they accomplished constructing their facility.
Poncho and Sugar brought those ideas back to Huntsville and lead the charge of building the new facility. He and his spirit of togetherness brought in over two million dollars for the project.
The City of Huntsville celebrated Poncho Roberts at a City Council meeting on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 by naming the aquatic center after him in honor of his dedication to the construction of the project.
