The families had a difficult time understanding the extent of the situation, so staff worked together to overcome language barriers and make sure they understood. They provided the families with cases and jugs of water, toiletries, and food. They also helped them find a place to take showers and launder clothing. This team truly exhibited servant leadership by taking care of the needs of these families.

    Each was asked to explain their “why.” Their answers follow:

    • Byrum – “HCCHS and FRYSC are a part of who I am. I love helping families and students.”
    • Estrada – “I love to help my community. We together can build strong family support and commitment to our students.”
    • Evans – “To inspire and empower the next generation to achieve their full potential.”
    • Owen – “I love working with kids. To be able to share in their individual accomplishments is what it is all about. They are the most important and best part of the job.”
    • Simms – “Education is such an important part of our children’s lives. I love the children of Hopkins County and want them to feel safe, loved, and successful. I’m happy to do anything I can through the Grapevine Family Resource Center to make that happen.”
