Pay It Forward begins this week in West Lubbock along Upland Avenue just south of 19th Street. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign in search of this week's playmaker.
It didn't take long for Chris Fails to spot our sign. He was southbound on Upland when he saw our sign and turned around. Chris has seen Pay It Forward before and knew exactly who he wanted to assist.
Chris has chosen Coach Ryan Bobo of Meadow High School as this week's recipient of $300 and explains that he wants the money to go towards the Summer League Girls Basketball Program. There is an entry fee each year that is difficult for several families to come up with. Chris knows that the money will help out with the summer program this year.
We take a journey to Meadow High School where we find Coach Bobo in the school gymnasium. Chris approaches Coach Bobo where he counts out $300 to help out with the Summer League Program.
Coach Bobo is thankful and explains, "Every single year, we have a problem where girls cannot do it because of money. That will come in handy Chris!"
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You may become our next playmaker!
