NE Tarrant County’s Hometown Heroes

Congratulations to Dana Coffman, Christi Pruitt & Kristi Starn-Harris

2017 northeast tarrant county hometown heroesThe 2017 Hometown Heroes An­nual Luncheon, held on May 18, 2017, celebrat­ed more than 40 local Hometown Heroes from Northeast Tarrant Coun­ty at the Hurst Conference Center. The event was co-hosted by Super Bowl XXX MVP Lar­ry Brown & Channel 8 Meteorologist Colleen Coyle.

Haltom City selected three wonderful Hometown Heroes that work tireless­ly on behalf of the citizens in Haltom City. Those recognized were Dana Coffman, Kristi Starn Harris and Christi Pruitt.

Dana Coffman is the Haltom City Parks Board Chair and has been an active member for five years. She is also the secretary of the Haltom City Girls Softball Association and a member of the Haltom City Citizens Police Academy. She works full time while homeschooling her daughter. Dana and her family are a fixture at all of our city special events where they volunteer wherever we need them.

Kristi Starn-Harris is in her 28th year of teaching in BISD, be­ginning at Haltom Middle School. She has been the Education­al Diagnostician for Haltom Middle since 1997, working with special needs students and helping them get the services they need to be successful. She is also the PTA president of Haltom High School, where she helps to organize fundrais­ing events, including the craft fair and the Drive for Your School with Five Star Ford. She received her undergrad­uate degree in education from UNT and her Masters from Texas Woman’s University.

Christi Pruitt has been working for the City of Haltom City for 12 years and was recently promoted to the Parks & Recreation Director. She is a graduate from Texas Christian University with a degree in Kinesiology and she bleeds TCU purple! Christi is a founding mem­ber of the annual Haltom City Back to School Health Fair, which gives our local elementary and middle school students a free backpack, school supplies, and health screenings. Over the past seven and a half years, her efforts have raised over $170,000! Christi has been happily married to Jeff for 15 years and they have two daughters.

Thank you to Dana, Kristi and Christi for your continued in­volvement in our city and your outstanding examples of com­munity engagement and leadership.

WT Francisco - Clean Campus

WT Francisco earned Clean campus Award for 2016-17 school year

wt fransisco clean campus award 2016 17W.T. Francisco Elemen­tary has been awarded $500 for being the Cleanest Campus in Haltom City for the 2016-17 school year. Keep Haltom City Beauti­ful (KHCB) rated the local school campuses on having litter-free grounds, available litter and recycling barrels, and the general appearance of their campuses. Each school also submitted their current projects, events and activities that support the KHCB mission, along with photos.

Some of the programs at W. T. include the courtyard committee, which determined the needs and projects for the court­yard garden and coordinated with student and teachers to complete the projects. Their campus courtyard is utilized by the students and staff for outdoor teaching and animal observation. They have a student leadership team that regularly collect trash and recyclables on campus grounds in order to keep the campus clean. BISD introduced a district-wide recycling program in 2016-17, and students at W. T. are responsible for recycling class materials daily in the school’s recycling receptacles.

Second graders observed the butterfly life cycle and released them into the campus courtyard. They also bring recyclable items from home to build “recycle-bots”. Third grade students grew tomato plants in the campus courtyard, as well as ob­served larvae turning into ladybugs. Fifth graders attended Camp Grady Spruce, a science camp, where they learned sci­ence and environmental objectives.

Congratulations to W. T. Francisco Elementary staff and stu­dents for their commitment to protecting our environment and Keeping Haltom City Beautiful.
