WTCRC sponsors third annual `watermelon day'
Students, staff and volunteers at WTSS got a break from the heat on Aug.
27, with the help of more than 100 ice-cold watermelons from Coyanosa, courtesy
of the West Texas Community Resource Council.
WTCRC council members Julia Smith, Marissa Layton, Bill and Dottie Slattery
and volunteer Dennis Bowers were on hand to share in the festivities. The
cold melons provided some very welcome relief from the 109-degree temperatures
of the day. This is the third year the WTCRC has hosted the "Watermelon Day"
and it becomes more successful each year.
The mission of the Texas Youth Commission volunteer services department
is to maximize community resources and utilize volunteers to provide opportunities
that enable youth to become responsible and productive citizens.
West Texas State School is always in need of volunteers for membership
on the West Texas Community Resource Council, to provide one-on-one tutoring,
enhance religious activities, to serve as mentors and to sponsor special
events such as dorm Christmas parties.
Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer at WTSS, can contact Donna Garcia,
