Impressed with youth throughout county

Dear editor,

Anyone who knows me at all knows that I think that Milam County is a great place to work and to live. Being a participant in Leadership Milam has made me even more aware of our need and our willingness to work together.

Added to this is a dimension that I sometimes forget: What wonderf ul, smart, talented, young people we have in our schools, and what wonderful schools we have for them to attend!

I saw evidence of that in our last meeting of Leadership Milam as we were privileged to hear young people sing, play wonderful music, show off their artistic abilities and how they are developing those, and put on a clever, well done one act play.

I was so impressed by the demeanor as well as the talent of these young people. (I don’t see top hats and lovely blue dresses every day.)

I hope that we can all encourage these young people and their teachers and administrators as they strive to keep us proud of our community and supportive of all of the activities in our schools!

Dr. Lucile Estell 611 Belton Street Rockdale
