Hill County Paw Pals Receives First Gift

in “Take Willie Nelson’s Challenge” Fund Raising Drive

County Paw Pals extends their sincere and grateful gratitude to Ms. Julia Brown and her 6th Grade Gifted and Talented Class of Hillsboro Intermediate School for their gift of $100. The class conducted a long term project of publishing a school-wide newspaper with the proceeds benefiting Paw Pals’ endeavors to build a county animal shelter. The timing of this gift was perfect as it is the first to be included in Paw Pals’ fund raising drive labeled “Take Willie Nelson’s Challenge” where every dollar is doubled thanks to philanthropists Cheryl and Sam Wyly’s gift to match up to $40,000 during this next year.

Ms. Brown’s class started the first semester of the school year devoted to an in-depth study of the workings of a newspaper, the different sections, staffing and lay-out. Beginning in the second semester the paper was published monthly and bi-monthly and sold to students in the morning during school store time. The students did an awesome job of interviewing school personnel and writing thought provoking editorials on current events and trends. The class was composed of Jordon Satterfield, Jazmyn Washington, Phoebe Alloy, Martha Floy, Carly Shelby, Laurie Daniel, Corey Dominqez, Austin Buesse, and Lane Walters. The 6th grade class gives much thanks to the leadership of Ms. Brown for her guidance in leading the class to such a worthy experience that culminated in a gift that will ultimately benefit all citizens and companion animals of Hill County. Also pictured in the picture accepting this generous gift is Lana Crow, Paw Pals’ fund raising chairperson.

Paw Pals has scheduled a public meeting on Thursday at 6:30pm on June 21 at the Bullock Room at Hill College Cafeteria building in Hillsboro.
