Student Athletes Donate Gifts

Just over 50 children will get a present this Christmas thanks to some of the student athletes at McNiel Junior High.

Members of the girls athletic department adopted the Angel Tree at the Wichita Falls Teachers Federal Union this year.  On Wednesday they delivered their gifts to the bank and those involved said it was a great experience for the girls.

Tracy Stegall, McNiel Jr. High Coach/Teacher said, “They were really excited.  They were’t sure what is was all about until we took the tags back.”

Kammy Blevins, Athletic Director said everyone was really proud of the girls and how well them came together.

This is the second year the girls have picked an Angel Tree and the tenth year that the back has participated in the program.
