Poe visits Highlands Elementary

HIGHLANDS– As part of his annual Holiday observation, Congressman Ted Poe collects cards for the troops for the Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes Campaign. Congressman Poe has been able to personally deliver many of these cards to our troops stationed overseas.
The students of Goose Creek CISD and the Baytown Chamber of Commerce have done an outstanding job this year collecting cards for this campaign. Over 10,000 cards were collected for our troops!

On Monday morning, Nov. 29 a delegation that included Poe, Rikki Wheeler of the Baytown Chamber, Bob Hoskins, chairman of Partners in Education and a member of the Goose Creek Board of Trustees, were present on the Highlands Elementary campus to personally thank all the students at this school and the other GCCISD schools that worked so hard to make this a success.
Highlands Elementary won most creative (second year in a row), Sterling High School collected the most cards (3809), with help from their Partner in Education, San Jacinto Hospital.
