AEP Texas Goes Wild in Beeville Schools

Beeville students received the Kritters 4 Kids Environmental Education Program thanks to the generous support of AEP Texas. Fadden-McKeown-Chambliss Elementary School students were the first to receive the program in Bee County.  “The Kritters 4 Kids program is an incredible program, which makes learning about the environment fun,” says Harold Ashley, AEP Texas Community Affairs Manager for the Beeville area.  “We are thrilled to be the first sponsor in Bee County and hope that other companies and civic groups will join us in supporting this impressive program.”  

Other Beeville ISD schools who received the programs donated by AEP Texas are R.A. Hall Elementary School (2 programs), Hampton-Moreno-Dugat Early Childhood, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, and Moreno Middle School.

Thank you Larry Jones and Harold Ashley of AEP Texas - Your commitment to the conservation and preservation of Coastal Bend wildlife makes a huge impact on the students, teachers, and administrators at Beeville ISD.  We appreciate you!

***We appreciate our board member John West, who lives in Beeville and took this and lots of other great photos at our presentation that day.
