During the StuCo meeting Monday night, Care for Kyle’s Comrades, a major project for Veteran’s Day, began.

Kyle Stout graduated from Texas High in 2003, and was killed Friday, July 30, while serving in Afghanistan. In his honor, a district-wide effort has begun to send care packages overseas, to the men and women who served with Stout.

  • $20 Pre-paid Phone Cards
