Diaz barbecue benefit a success

 

Dear Editor,
 
The family of Deputy Raul Diaz would like to thank the DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office for their time and effort for the barbecue benefit on June 7. It was a huge success and big help with medical expenses. We would also like to thank everyone in the community who either bought plates or made a donation and kept us in your prayers. Words can not express how grateful we are for everyone who took part. God Bless!
 
Sincerely, 
 
Maria Diaz

Lynn reflects and sends his best wishes

I review with satisfaction our accomplishments. Yorktown High School’s state accountability report for the 2014-2015 school year will not be out until the fall semester. I can anticipate for you the high school will receive distinction designations for our passing rates in four STAAR end-of-course tested subjects: U.S. History, taught by Shirley Moczygemba, 100%; Biology, taught by Dustin Nessel, 95%; Algebra 1, taught by Barbara Bryand, 87%; and English 1, taught by Lara Robinson, 86%. In addition, English 2, taught by Lara Robinson, had 81% passing.

The ACT was administered this fall to all thirty one juniors. Previously, students had to travel to Victoria College or Coastal Bend College in Beeville to take the ACT. It took some doing but we received approval to administer the test at the high school.
