Five Wise County Extension Education members represented Wise County at the District 3 TEEA Conference April 18 in Archer City. Those attending were Dixie Range, Rosa Martinez, Gerry Galloway, Bobbie Ashley and Linda Hood.
Activities included a speaker, silent auctions and a cultural arts contest. The speaker from Smith’s Gardentown, Wichita Falls, shared gardening information on recommended bedding plants, trees and perennials for our area of Texas.
Greenwood Extension Education Club member Galloway was honored with the Rolling Plains District 3 Texas Treasure Award, which pays tribute to members who have made a difference in their communities through their TEEA work.
Nominated by fellow club members, Galloway has been an active member of the EE Club for nine years. She is generous with her time and talents which have reaped many successful projects for her club. She is described by her fellow members as kind, patient, thoughtful, unselfish and understanding.
Galloway is a tireless worker who is always first in line to volunteer for the next event. She is truly a treasure to the Greenwood EE Club and Wise County TEEA Association.
