Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon

It was cowboy hats and bowling balls for some East Texans Saturday at the Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon in Lufkin.

The annual event is a big fundraiser for the organization that devotes much of their time to economic education and work force preparation. Organizers of the event say they're extremely pleased with the turnout.

Natalie Thornton, Executive Director of Junior Achievement said, "we had about 125 to 150 people today to participate and everybody had a great time winning door prizes and making a difference for Junior Achievement."

Team KTRE featured a few familiar faces at the Bowl-A-Thon. Meteorologist Jene' Young and Reporter Jessica Cervantez were on hand having some fun.
