Class of 2019 Are Earning Their Wings!

The Schulenburg High School Class of 2019 recently received their select green Flying Shorthorns t-shirts. Jackson Allan Hooper, for whom Turtle Wing Foundation was founded in memory of in 2011, was part of this class. Though he will not be walking across the stage with his classmates, his memory and the impact his life and passing left on his peers will definitely be present. The foundation has shared a coordinated effort with Schulenburg ISD administration, some of Jack’s classmates and former teachers and created of “The Year of the Flying Shorthorn.” This project is intended to further the mission of Turtle Wing and in turn help all children become the best they can be, helping them to fly academically, socially and emotionally. The focus will be on four character traits:  Kindness, Acceptance, Inclusion and Service. The SISD Class of 2019 will also be featured at the annual Turtle Wing Toast, which is set to be held on January 31 from 6-8 PM at Sengelmann Hall in Schulenburg. This is a night the foundation invites families, volunteers, donors, and supporters to “Reflect, Rejoice, and Renew!” Turtle Wing’s mission is to “help children with learning challenges in rural areas with learning challenges achieve their full potential”. The foundation serves youth in Fayette, Lavaca, Colorado and surrounding counties. For more information on the foundation contact Turtle Wing managing director, Susie Shank at 979-505-5090 or
