New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 7, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas GOODFORYOU Photo submitted SVHS juniors recently made a surprise visit to Spring Branch Middle School with a check for two district employees. From left, Jennifer Moreno and Katie Funk, Smithson Valley High PALS students, and Coach Molly Lightsey of Spring Branch Middle. SVHS Juniors present check to 2 district employees Smithson Valley High School juniors Katie Funk, Jennifer Moreno and Amy Lefever made a surprise visit to Spring Branch Middle School with a very large check recently. The girls, in Cricket Ingraham's PALS class, raised $2,242 for two district employees, SBMS coach Molly Lightsey and SVHS band director Jeff Lightsey, whose infant son Clark was born Nov. 9 with a diseased colon. Funk told Ingraham she wanted to do something to help with medical bills related to Clark’s required surgeries. “I love coach and the schools," Funk said, in a district press release. "I wanted to help them somehow because I knew the medical bills were high.” The girls raised the First $1,000 with a basketball shoot-a-thon for 75 students and adults. The remaining money was donated by local businesses. Molly was overwhelmed by the student’s gesture. “Thank you, thank you to everyone,” she said, through tears. “This will definitely help. Our insurance doesn’t cover the cost of all of the supplies we have to buy for Clark.” — Leigh Jones Birthdays/Anniversaries HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO: M Victorla.!Oactiz ■ Barbara Borchers, April 6 HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO: ■ Inocencio and Paula Paredez, 26 years How to get your news into the Herald-Zetiung Residents are encouraged to share their accomplishments, special moments and community events, you can submit by: ■ Mail- 707 Landa St 78130. ■ [email protected] ■ Information — Call 625-9144, ext 222 THURSDAY, APRIL 7, 2005 DAILY COMINGFRIDAY tw Tour of Faith Community of Christ will be profiled in the weekly series.
