To The Leader

Tropical Storm Imelda stalled over Southeast Texas and drowned many of the homes that were destroyed by Hurricane Harvey, plus others who had escaped the Harvey floods. Two Little Cypress-Mauriceville schools, Mauriceville Elementary, and Mauriceville Middle School were once again flooded and students and staff will begin attending schools in alternate locations as those campuses are remediated and repaired.

Among the many staff and volunteers working together to save materials and equipment from the water-soaked classrooms were Key Club members, led by their school sponsor, science teacher Woody Cox. One of the people to show up to help at Mauriceville Middle School was Pastor Brad McKenzie, who is the Texas Oklahoma Region 2 Trustee for Kiwanis, the civic organization that sponsors Key Club.
