The Woodrow Wilson Alumni Association Scholarship Trust Foundation recently announced its 1991 scholarship winners. The students and the colleges they will attend include Faustino Aguero, Southwest Texas State; Leigh Ann Stovall, University of Texas at Austin; Scott Canada, Texas Tech; Alison Harris, Texas A&M; and Tory Redington, Texas Tech.
The winners were selected from eleven finalists recommended by the school and interviewed by foundation trustees Bill “Bulldog” Cunningham ’49, Frank LaBarba ’50 and W. Dean Gerst ’49.
In its second year, the foundation will have 14 college students receiving continuing support. If you would like to contribute, send your tax-deductible donation to: W.W. Alumni Association, P.O. Box 180008, Dallas 75216, or call 601-2164.
Mother of All PTAs
Lakewood and East Dallas mothers have earned respect (and sometimes fear) for their vehement defense and diligent support of neighborhood schools. Because of their efforts, we enjoy good schools while others in the City do not.
The 1991-92 Woodrow PTA Board includes Cookie Stokes, president; Philis Knox, vice-president; Suzanne Burch, recording secretary; Barbara Bessner, corresponding secretary; Ann Jones, treasurer; Carol Hensley, historian; Pam Brimer, parliamentarian; Sharon Donaghe and Barbara Johnson, council delegates; Marilyn McBride, membership; Yolanda Najera, programs; Linda Boone, health; Ruth Pendergrass, education; Betty and Bobby Mayes, efficiency; and Lana Stackhouse, publicity.
Make a Difference
Another PTA mother getting ready for the new school year is volunteer director Pam Freeman, who is sending out an urgent request for help. Because of major cutbacks in the school district’s budget, volunteers are needed more than ever.
If you would like to help by tutoring, speaking to a class, sponsoring a student in danger of dropping out, or just providing general support, please call 601-2164. Out of nearly 200 Dallas public schools, Woodrow is always near the top in volunteer hours logged. Let’s keep it that way.
