to the staff of Lowe’s Home Improvement in Kerrville, for commemorating Memorial Day in a powerful and touching way: they placed a wreath and a sign in a parking spot that they had blocked off with plants.  The sign read, “For Memorial Day, Lowe’s is reserving a parking space in Honor of our fallen Military Members.” 

 

…to Schreiner University, for participating in the Rotary Youth Citizenship Awards by offering each winning fifth-grade student a four-year scholarship valued at $20,000.

Another toast goes out to Read 2 Win, which offered 700 area fifth-grade students character development training and increases educational programming to enrich Life Skills Development; and to all the other organizations that participated in this awards ceremony, a community collaboration involving five school districts, eight elementary schools, Schreiner University, The Kerrville Daily Times, Read 2 Win, SERV Kerrville and founding sponsor The Rotary Club of Kerrville — for continuing to incentivize good citizenship among our future leaders.

A special toast is offered to the fifth-grade winners, including Julia Whitworth and Jacob Mejia from Center Point ISD; Kenna Nichols and Cooper Gooden from Hunt ISD; Rangler Armke and Hallie Nichols from Ingram ISD; Lucy Ince and Ian Nieves from Notre Dame Catholic School; Elijah Armendariz-Lorows and Annelise Sifuentes from Nimitz Elementary; Ainslee Gilbreath and Jake Zirkel from Starkey Elementary; Tina Gramatikakis and Benjamin King from Tally Elementary; and Josiah Ayala-Aguirre and Lindsey Fowler from Tom Daniels Elementary.
