Ms. Hattie McCowan-45 Year Umphrey Lee Elementary Volunteer-Principal Tondolyn L. Mosely, Librarian Toni Ray Crawford, Constable Derek Evans


This morning the Umphrey Lee Longhorns recognized more than fifty volunteers for their Texas-size contributions to the students,faculty, staff and facility.

Honored volunteers included the following corporate sponsors and adopters who were present:  AXA Advisors, Chase, Chick-Fil-A, and Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Exciting Singing Hills Baptist Church and S.A.G.E.

Everyone was pleased to acknowledge Mrs. Hattie McCowan, who started volunteering in Dallas ISD over 50 years ago and has volunteered 45 of those years at Umphrey Lee.

The program included a delightful welcome from fifth-grader Jonna Choice, a poem "The Volunteers Prayer" recited by second-grader Tigie Fotanah and violin solos performed by Robert Haynes and Tonya Watkins -- both students in The Young Strings -- instructed by Merrily Colley.

Pre-K  and Kinder cowboys/girls boldly used their outdoor voices as they proudly sang, "We're from Big D."

At the TEA Recognized Umphrey Lee Elementary School, a 2011 Blue Ribbon School nominee, volunteers echo the motto, "No Excuses-- Just Results!"

Hats Off to All Volunteers!
