Forest Oak Middle School!
Here is the story of one man, who made a huge difference
Lowery Road Elementary School
Summer of 2012!
Max is an outstanding citizen and FWISD partner! During the 2012 drought, he emailed me and asked if he could water the trees at Lowery Road Elementary! Max hand watered the trees, carrying 5 gallon buckets across the street in 100 plus degree heat! The trees lived, Max and I became friends, and finally on 20 April 2013, at Councilman Scarth's Breakfast, we met in person! Max is one more reason I live and love Fort Worth! Max proves that you can work for education, even when you don't have kids in school!
IT TAKES A VILLAGE!
Become a part of our village in East Fort Worth!
Here is another East FW Superstar!
Darin lives in West Meadowbrook and his son attends a FWISD Elementary. While I was at a conference in California, Darin called to let me know students from EHHS were stranded, as their bus never arrived. He supported the students, reassuring them that a bus was on the way. Meanwhile, I called Principal Cherie Washington who already had a bus enroute!
Thank you Darin and West Meadowbrook! You always look out for our students!
April 18, 2013-Riverside Middle School Students welcome our Mayor and the SPARC Advisory Team!
So proud to work with our FWISD students on a daily basis! So fortunate to serve on the FWISD Board while Mayor Price is in office--she is a phenomenal force of nature, when it comes to education!

I believe this gentleman can lead change in East Fort Worth for decades to come! He's a WINNER and we're fortunate to have him at EHHS!
Mr. McCarty is an Eastern Hills High School grad and an Eastern Hills neighborhood resident! Check out our AWESOME EHHS NHS students! They're pretty cool, too! Mr. McCarty was the only administrator present for the clean up! Tells you something about his dedication!
Our adopted son, Ty Sims, is the Class Leader in the Fire Academy at EHHS! Ty introduced me to Pedro yesterday. Pedro will pursue a career in the ministry and Ty informed me, I would be adopting Pedro. Surprise, Bruce! We now have three adopted sons, Leo (POLY), Pedro, and Ty (both EHHS)!

Demonstrating once again that the great leadership over the past three years of Principal Douglas, AP Richard, and the faculty at EHE is working! Working from the bottom up, they are improving the critical thinking skills of their students rocketing them to SUCCESS!
Ty Sims is one of the 49 Fire Science students at EHHS. He has aspired to be a firefighter since the age of 4! Let's support Ty and our other 48 students!
