Maypearl High School School Resource Officer Davis
Maypearl High School Resource Officer Davis delivering food to one of our Maypearl High School students and family facing hard times during the recent shut-down. He is pictured with Mentors Care Coordinator to Maypearl High School, Jessica Roberts. We are sincerely grateful to the friends of our program who made this gift of provisions available.
*If you would like to donate snacks to our program, remember we offer our students 2 snacks each day as brain food! It truly keeps them going throughout the long school day. For some, snacks through our program are the only nourishment they will have all day. We are grateful for any contributions! You can see our list on Amazon Smile HERE!
Chief Dooley of Glenn Heights Police Department
Host Dena Petty sits down with one of Mentors Care’s most visible volunteers–Vernell Dooley. He’s the Chief of Police in Glenn Heights and serves as a mentor at nearby Red Oak High School.
Dooley admits that while some weeks in law enforcement are strenuous and difficult, they always seem to brighten up after he invests that one hour a week with his assigned student at Red Oak High School.
His conversation reminds other mentors that staying “others-focused” is a key way to combat being consumed with one’s own personal schedule, job demands, and a never-ending “to-do” list.
In Loving Memory
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dear friend and board member, Carl Smith.
He was a wonderful husband, father, friend, and servant to our community. He will be missed. Please keep his wife and family in your prayers
