The Converse Lion’s Club Donates Dictionaries to all Judson ISD 3rd Grade Students
“WE SERVE” is the Motto for the Converse Lion’s Club and it shows as they empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international understanding. The Lion’s Club International is the world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members worldwide. Judson ISD is so grateful for this service partnership as the Converse Lion’s Club held a fundraising raffle beginning in October to raise funds to purchase 1,700 dictionaries. These dictionaries are now in the hands of all our Judson ISD 3rd grade students. This project has been a priority for the Converse Lion’s Club for more than 15 years and they have been able to serve all Judson ISD elementary schools for the past 6 years. District Governor, Dave Splitek, and Converse Lion’s Club Officers, Kathy & Harold Bellamy were very excited to support the District through this annual project and to hand out dictionaries to each smiling student. Mr. Splitek said, “The best way to be happy is to help someone else.” They understand that both in-person and virtual students need to have the resources to learn more effectively and prepare them academically. Judson ISD is appreciative of this generous donation and for the example of service and giving back to the community.
