The Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation carries through on its mission of providing peer recognition for its winners and finalists by having board members available to attend 8th grade awards assemblies. At these assemblies board members have the opportunity to further honor these outstanding students in front of their friends and family, and bring more exposure to this worthy program.
This spring board members were asked to attend assemblies at 17 north Texas middle and junior high schools. These included Brooks Wester (Mansfield ISD), Summer Creek (Crowley ISD), Fossil Hill (Keller ISD), Central (HEB ISD), Gunn (Arlington ISD), Kennedale, Keller, North Richland, Dawson (Carroll ISD), Carroll, Bailey (Arlington ISD), Shackelford (Arlington ISD), Walker (Dallas ISD), Chisholm Trail (Northwest ISD), Hillwood (Keller ISD), McLean (Fort Worth ISD), and Daggett Montessori (Fort Worth ISD). Many thanks to BBYF board members Jim Beckman, Frank Carroll, Michael Davidson, Bobbie Edmonds, Michael Goodrich, Bob Hamilton, Doug Jennings, Greg Kalina, Julie Ladner, Chris Lewis, Paul Rogers, Tracy Taylor, and Doug White who attended one or more of these assemblies.
