3rd Annual Back to School Bash

Dear Editor,

Tri-City Empowerment Council would like to thank so many for the success of the 3rd Annual Ethosha Lynn Back-To-School Bash: the children, their guardians, sponsors, and the many hands that helped make it possible. Ethosha’s dream was to provide backpacks full of supplies to any child who wanted them, regardless of who they were or their social status. Thanks to everyone involved, we were able to achieve that dream on a greater scale than the two previous events, and will continue to grow!

We would like to extend thanks to our sponsors: Cuero Development Corporation, and their continued support of community events, H-E-B Tournament of Champions, and H-E-B of Cuero, Diamond K Services of Cuero, Walmart of Cuero, Rent-A-Center of Cuero, Christ Healing Center of Cuero, Marcelus Wesley and Grace Memorial Chapel of Victoria, Andrew M. Arbameit, Attorney-at-law, of Cuero, Weaver & Jacobs Construction Inc. of Cuero, Foster Parents of Victoria, Grace Episcopal Church of Cuero, Dee Sager, Marie Miller, Walter & Judy Fisher, The City of Cuero, Earl and Mary Lewis, Breath of Life Ministries of Cuero, James Teleco, Sid Duderstadt, Johnal Holman, Tyler Hargrove, Bralen DuBose, Tim Jackson, Jason Carter, Cuero Livestock Commission, Trinity Church (Youth), DeWitt County Republican Party, Regina Ross-Cowan, July 4th Cuero Community Carnival, Lorraine Dick, Neal & Carol Esktrom, Paul Guidry, and Mrs. Weise.

To our event planning staff: Drosto Montgomery—Life/Business Coach, Viola Holman, Monica Battles, LeTeisha Newton, Ramona Wallace, Diana Sebastian, and Isabel Patton.

We’d also like to thank, Tyler Hargrove, Loleat Ross, Ashakoy Gray, Dorothur O’Donnell, Jason Wallace, Arkeia Holman, and Nina Wallace, Mr. & Mrs. Chris Coppedge, J’Kalen Holman friends and family for helping. 

We’d also like to thank the many volunteers and vendor that gave their support and made this Back-To-School Bash a reality.

Through the generous efforts of individuals, churches and businesses, many children who needed assistance in obtaining necessary school supplies will now have them. And through these same efforts, the community has been brought together for a day of food, fun, and fellowship.

It truly takes a village to raise a child and this event today is evidence of that.

Ethosha used to say, “Just do it!” and together we have done it. She would be happy and proud.

LeTeisha Newton
