Miracle Monday at Mangum Elementary School

 

MIRACLE MONDAY AT MANGUM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL:

EVERY STUDENT RECEIVES A NEW BIKE

  

HOUSTON, TX (December 12, 2014) – Southwest Schools (http://swshools.org) is pleased to announce that the Buzbee Law Firm (http://www.txattorneys.com/) is giving a new bicycle to every child who attends the district’s Mangum Elementary Campus.

On Monday, December 15th at 9:30AM, the students will be in for a big surprise when they come out to the parking lot and see all the bikes!  Santa and his helpers will be on hand to greet the children and unload the more than 400 bicycles.

School Principal, Dr. Josefa Oilvares, is amazed.  “Our school is in the heart of a traditionally underserved community.  The generosity of the Buzbee Law Firm is overwhelming to us.  Their gift to the girls and boys will be remembered by each one of them for a lifetime.”

Southwest Schools is a choice-based Texas education district with an understanding that true learning is not based on standardized testing or college entrance, but on offering a fulfilling educational experience that can be adjusted for each student.

 We understand a successful education is one where boundaries are overcome, opportunities are experienced and possibility is realized. Regardless of how a student got here, from the day they start at Southwest Schools we rally around them with the promise of acceptance, encouragement and success.

 

We can not say thank you enough to The Buzbee Law firm for their very generous donation to the students of our Mangum Elementary Campus. But a very special thank you must go to Chrissy Martinez, and of course Tony Buzbee!! You are truly appreciated!!
