Local Youth Host ‘Tree of Hope’

Cancer knows nor cares about the time of year.  It comes into the lives of its victims when they least expect it.  As it entwines and attacks that victim and begins its path of destruction, it leaves the cancer patient and their love ones hoping and praying for a cure. That’s where two outstanding students from Electra ISD come in.  Deanna Duensing and Sage Buchanan along with the support of Plowing Over Cancer of Electra are hosting the ‘Tree of Hope.’  For every $10 donated, a light bulb will be placed on the ‘Tree of Hope.’  The bulb will be lit in either pink or purple.  Donations can be made in memory of, in honor of, or anyone can just make a donation to support the Relay for Cancer.  December 18, 2015 will be the due date for all donations.  The order form can be found online on the American Cancer Society’s website.  If you would like to see the ‘Tree of Hope, the tree’s location is at 204 W. Cleveland.  For more information watch Deanna and Sage’s interview below with channel 3.  You can also contact Jason Duensing at (940)733-7208 or Dea Buchanan at (940)631-2172.

Weekly Breakfast with the Tigers

Weekly the Tigers and cheerleaders have faithfully driven over to Electra Elementary to visit with students during breakfast.  This Friday, 10-23-2015, pink filled the room in honor of helping the America Cancer Society fight for a cure. It was so neat to see the excitement on the elementary student’s faces as the varsity and cheerleaders walked in.  Of course the Tiger was a big hit!  I have to admit, I loved seeing my now grown up ( 🙁 ) students who I dearly miss.
