Third Graders Receive Dictionaries from NSRW
North Shore Republican Women's literacy chairmen, Dorothy Hlopak and Debbie Cantu, spent April 12 delivering dictionaries to every third grade class in Willis Independent School District! Media Chairman Ann Kate tagged along for a while to take photos. Thanks to contributions from our members through The Dictionary Project, we were able to give all third graders their very own dictionary to take home and use. Thank you to Jamie Fails, Willis ISD director of communications, for helping organize the distribution and accompanying Dorothy and Debbie to Meador, Parmley and Hardy Elementaries. In the afternoon, Cannan and Turner students received their books. NSRW loves children, and we think The Dictionary Project is a great way to help them learn.
Some of our North Shore Republican Women board members donned their "shades" in participation of National Federation of Republican Women's spirit project "The Future's So Bright We've Got to Wear Shades..." Fun times! #NFRWBrightFuture
