Five Wise County Extension Education members represented Wise County at the District 3 TEEA Conference April 20, in Vernon. Those attending were voting delegates Dixie Range and Betty Kennon, and members Gerry Galloway, Bobbie Ashley and Marilynn Collins.
Activities focused on motivational speakers, silent auctions and a cultural arts contest.
The purpose of the cultural arts contest is to establish a broader understanding and awareness of arts and to envision individual growth, inspiration and enrichment through participation in varied forms of art. Annette Stephens received first with her Penny Rug, and Lila Reed placed second with her red bird painting. Annette will be representing Wise County at the State Cultural Arts competition in September. Other members participating in the Cultural Arts competition were Frances Cason, Gerry Galloway and Marilynn Collins.
The Greenwood Extension Education Club received recognition for 83 Years of active TEEA involvement. In addition, club member Wilema England was honored with a certificate for 60 years of active service to the Greenwood club.
The mission of the Texas Extension Education Association is to work with Texas AgriLife Extension Service to strengthen and enrich families through educational programs, leadership development and community service. Membership is open to adult Wise County residents regardless of socioeconomic level, race, color, sex, religion, disability or nationality.
