Hundreds of Bryan youngsters received “summer fun” backpacks Wednesday when members of the Business Student Council at Mays Business School brought them to two Bryan elementary campuses. Every student at Fannin and Neal elementary schools received backpacks filled with educational games and books.
After lunch, free ice cream was given to each Fannin and Neal student, thanks to Project Mays. Each Fannin and Neal teacher also received a goody bag with a gift certificate inside. The gifts were made available through donations from Mays faculty and staff and corporate sponsorships.
This is the fourth year Bryan ISD has been selected for this special event.
“Over 950 students from Fannin and Neal Elementary Schools are receiving an important academic boost because of the educational materials, books and games provided by Project Mays. These materials will support the students in learning over the summer,” said Mike Cargill, superintendent of the Bryan school district. “The gift of a new backpack will give each student a head start for the 2011 school year.”
