was hired by the Board to serve as Executive Director in the fall of 2015. She earned a Bachelors of Science from the University of Texas at Dallas with a double major in Psychology and Child Learning and Development with an emphasis in Adolescents in May of 2015. Becky has a heart for troubled kids and worked as an Intern at The Path while attending college. Prior to that she was an active volunteer for years in Washington state while stationed there while serving in the Navy. She continues to influence the students of Tom Bean by mentoring and engaging in everyday life discussions with them. A great role model for our students.
Is serving as our intern at the Path. Jordan is in her final semester of college pursuing her dream of working with children with learning disabilities. She has been involved in youth ministry in Tom Bean for several years. She has a great personality and students love to be around her. She is an awesome asset at the Path because she works well with the students that come to the Path, and she enjoys it!
Partnership with Church’s such as FBC of Tom Bean, local student organization like North Texas Youth Connection and Local Business’s such as Home Depot have attributed to the Paths success. These partnerships provided needed funds, supplies and opportunity to fulfill our mission. This year we have added two new Partnerships that have greatly enhanced our services to students.
Down Town Chapel/Share Ministries Food Bank is a growing food bank in Sherman that provides for the needs of those that are hungry in Grayson County. We began partnering with Share Ministries to provide our students at the Path snacks and drinks after school. These food and drink donations allow us to provide our hungry students refreshments free of cost.
Community Bible Fellowship Church was a new church plant in the Tom Bean area that leased the Path as its main meeting place on Sunday Morning for Worship and Wednesday Nights for Student Oriented functions. CBF Church invested funds into the Paths Heating and Air Conditioning system which solved a major problem we had with climate control. Also, the church provided labor and funding to remodel and refurnish the Path. These improvements gave the interior of the Path an update that was long needed after serving students for 4 years. The CBF church has since moved to their own facility in Howe but we are eternally grateful for their support.
THANKFUL TO MANY OTHERS
We are so thankful for the many others that have helped. It's so difficult to be all inclusive but we would like to recognize Austin Deberry, Jackie Meek, Amy White, Doug Hunt, Destiny Hunt, Patty Barker, Chemine Burns, and Ricky Pugh.
started as a volunteer at The Path in August 2015. She is a wife, mother to 3 of our students and works at Wakefield Elementary as their Cafeteria Manager. She is a wonderful volunteer who brings a Mom-like-quality to The Path that might otherwise be missing. It is no strange occurance to hear students (who don't live with her) call her mom. She is so caring and the kids can feel it.
