Our children in Shallowater are the future, not just the next generation, but tomorrow. The things we do for our children tomorrow make a difference in the long run.
We can't afford to wait for someone else to take care of the needs of our children. We don't sit back and watch as time moves across the West Texas sky and hope of a better tomorrow; we are creating better tomorrows for our children today.
