CROSBY – The 2013 New Educator’s Luncheon brought much of this area and neighboring Huffman to the American Legion Post 658 on a bright and sultry Wednesday.

For the 26th time, the emphasis of this area’s Chamber on quality education was evident and participation at a maximum.

Susan Armstrong having headed the Education Committee for years with support from Venita Smith passed the torch to Judy Sirocka of Crosby Office Supplies, to head up the planning for the event which went smoothly.

The Superintendent of Crosby ISD, Dr. Keith Moore and Superintendent of Huffman ISD Dr. Benny Soileau introduced their principals of each school and the principals introduced the new faculty. Both Superintendents alluded to a cooperation between the schools and a competition.

Dr. Moore jested that he had found a playbook of Huffman Falcons Football team, Dr. Soileau admitted he had planted that playbook for Moore to find in the interest of full disclosure.

Crosby Church provided teacher supplies arrangements at each table that were decorative and practical. Representative Dan Huberty R., 127th District, lavished gifts on both districts. Huberty is a strong proponent of efficient and quality education having served as Chairman of the Humble School District before his Texas House election. United Community Credit Union was chief sponsor and competed with Community Resource Credit Union for best prize contributor. Goodybags of items from local businesses were offered to each of the new educators seperated for Crosby and Huffman teachers.

The next C-HCC meeting is the picnic in the park to be held Sept. 19 at the Precinct 2 Park behind the Crosby library with special booth and emphasis on efforts of the Beautification Committee.
