One of the men in our SS department at FBC(1st Bapist church) is a teacher and the head of the biology department at Lee High School, Midland. He told this story yesterday at church...

Lee High School is in the process of remodeling and renovating the school. Most of the work will be done this summer, and during the first semester of next year. Portable buildings are being brought in for them to meet in until the work is finished. They are in the process of cleaning out closets, classrooms, storage facilities, discarding out of date chemicals, books, etc. The city brought one of the big industrial size garbage dumpsters out to the school and placed it right in front of the building to facilitate the process. The city told them they would come this past Wednesday and dump it, so they could add more trash.

Well, one of the departments decided to throw their old desks in the dumpster, and he said they were put in upside down with the legs sticking up out of the filled dumpster. The city failed to come empty the dumpster on Wednesday as they had promised so when there was no room for more trash, they called to remind them that it was supposed to have been emptied on Wednesday The city told them that they had been told not to dump it.... It seems that someone passed by and saw the desks and requested that they not empty the dumpster until they could salvage the desks.... Guess who????

Our first lady, Laura Bush, was in town last week visiting her mother. When they passed by Lee High School, and she saw all the school desks that were being discarded, she called the city and told them not to empty the dumpsters, that there would be someone coming by to collect the desks and they would be sent directly to Afghanistan for the schools there.....

Neat, huh? I thought that was a neat story, and wanted to share it with you. I am a "recycler", and it is neat to know that our first lady is also! Hope you are having a good day....



Been confirmed true by 2 different people who have inside track to when Mrs. Bush will be in town.
