"Just to see the smiles on the kids faces. All the hard work we went through with me and my whole staff, it all went to an end once I got out there at 5 oclock and we started. I presented an award to one kid, and he kind of got emotional, and that's what it's about at the end of the day: being able to touch these kids and being able to help somebody else succeed in life."
"I enjoyed helping out and giving back to the kids, that was big for me. Giving is better than receiving is what i'm trying to say, so it was a great experience overall."
"At the beginning of this he said, "Momma I'm blessed to be a blessing." And that's what he got out of it, that he was able to bless these kids, and let them know that they mean something in life, and that they can go as far as they want to go."
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are ongoing across eastern Texas into northern Louisiana and these will move east toward SWLA overnight. A few thunderstorms look possible across our area, but the greatest risk of severe weather is still well north of our area. With that said there is a low chance that a few storms could be strong with gusty winds the primary concern, although a tornado is not impossible either.More >>
