Accepting the Crystal!

Last night Texas HIPPY accepted the Crystal Award from the Texas Association for Partners in Education! Attending the ceremony from Snyder ISD were Ana Montoya, HIPPY Home Instructor; Diana Arrellano, HIPPY Home Instructor and Kathy White, HIPPY Coordinator; Carla Weir from Texas HIPPY and the presentation was made by a representative from Washington Mutual.

It was exciting to get to meet both educators and representatives from many Texas corporations and businesses who are giving time and money to support education in Texas.

We're proud and honored to have been recognized with the Crystal Award in the category of Texas Collegiate Partnership with a small school district (Snyder ISD).

Congratulations David and Mara

David Tisdale, Texas HIPPYCorps Coordinator, got married last weekend in a beautiful ceremony, to Mara Cuban. We were so happy to be there to witness on one of the coldest days in Texas this year. Now he and Mara are enjoying a balmy honeymoon in Costa Rica. Congratulations!

The picture above shows me and my family with David and Mara (l-r, Ricardo Weir, Sofia Weir, Mara Cuban, David Tisdale, Carla Weir, and Hannah Weir).
