Brandon Celebrates Mentors

The school year is almost over and all week, Brandon Elementary School in Lufkin is celebrating its HOSTS mentors that helped make the year a success.

HOSTS is the acronym for Helping Other Students to Succeed. Forty-nine third-graders were in the program this year. Their mentors helped them with reading, spelling, and material they'll see on the TAKS test.

More than 125 volunteers were HOSTS mentors at Brandon, including several members of the East Texas News team.
