Tickets are $60 per person or a table of six for $400. The mission of the foundation is to provide opportunities for excellence, promote innovation in teaching, inspire learning and partner with the community to enhance the quality of education for all students. Tax dollars support mandated education, but The Foundation funding enhances the educational system, making it possible to offer our students the highest quality educational opportunities and experiences. It also supports activities not funded by tax revenue through a process developed and overseen by a volunteer committee, representing business, community and educational leaders. At this writing, The Foundation has awarded $170,890 in grants benefitting students and educators at Anderson-Shiro schools. For more information or for tickets contact Erna Freeman, 936-870-8407.

This week has been a very challenging one in the Sowell household as well as many more households as 125-150 people searched night and day for 3-year-old Christopher Rameriz of Plantersville for three days. When Saturday morning came things still looked hopeless for the rescue of this little guy. Then a call came in around 11:15 a.m. that changed the whole course of the day. He was found a little over 4 miles from his home. And the rest is history! Words cannot express the admiration for all the law enforcement officers and agencies (state and local), fire departments, the team of Tim Miller and Texas Equusearch, and so, so many more that spent endless hours in the search. They all worked together in an organized form to get the word out about the situation. Grimes County made not only local and state news but national as well. Congratulations to each and every one and especially to my wonderful husband – our Sheriff Don Sowell who would not give up until Christopher was found. Thank you all for your service.
