Celebrating Family and Freedom

Celebrating Family and Freedom

Submitted by: Shaunna Harris, General Manager July 4th is the time of year when my family always holds our annual family reunion. We have a celebration of all the generations along with a celebration of our freedom in our great country. The food is amazing when everyone is competing to have the best BBQ! The memories we make each year are talked about for years to come (those remember when moments!). It is a day you can feel the love and support of your entire family from being together. The faces of the children as they watch the fireworks are …

A 4th of July Promise

A 4th of July Promise

Submitted by: Janeisha Spruiell, General Manager 2009 was a rough year for me. I am originally from Chicago, but I tell people that I am from Dallas because I have been here for so long. It has always been me and my mom here in Texas while most of my other family are still in Chicago or East St. Louis, and I didn’t visit very often to either place to see them. In March 2009, my mom passed away and my Grandmother passed away soon after. I was heartbroken and distraught. My mother was the only family I had been …

Being Robert’s Voice

Being Robert’s Voice

Submitted by: Jennifer Mitton, General Manager Autism is a developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to people. It also affects how they make sense of the things around them. It is a spectrum condition, which means, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways. Autism doesn’t come with a manual. It comes with a parent who never gives up being the voice for their child. My son Robert was 6 years old when he was diagnosed with being on the spectrum. He is considered high functioning and …

My Miracle

My Miracle

Submitted by: Amy Kremitzki, General Manager My daughter, Abbygail Jean, blessed my life with her presence December 27th, 2002. Things were not “smooth” for her arrival. I was very ill and she was very early.

Doctors were also not sure to what extent this would affect her. She was initially diagnosed with Static Encephalopathy. Which means that the brain function is abnormal and it interferes with learning, development, and …

A More Certain Truth of Time

A More Certain Truth of Time

Submitted by: Jason Broce, Director of Human Resources and Colon Cancer Survivor Some say, “growing older is a privilege denied to many”. Like many quotes of wisdom, this is one that I have come to understand, yet never fully embraced until a couple of years ago. I’ve always been an advocate of my own health. As a boy, I remember watching my Dad running, lifting weights, and hanging from his biceps, and I wanted to be strong like him. Aside from a few years in college, I’ve always deliberately watched what I ate and maintained a regular exercise routine. With …
