Enhancements of the boat ramp docks have been made at Twin Dikes Public, Mill Creek, and San Augustine parks. Construction began in May and was finished before Juneteenth weekend. Jasper County Judge Mark Allen credits the US Army Corps of Engineers with completing the project quickly. They provided materials and equipment, while Jasper County provided volunteers to help with installation.
“I have always loved music and dancing. That has been my thing ever since I was a little girl, and so, when he came along and started doing all this, it was like ‘Wow, that’s really different and I like it,’” Cook said.
"I first found out about them from my drill team director. She was a Rangerette. And she showed us the sweethearts of the Gridiron movie. And ever since then I was just really inspired. Because not only are they just like dancers, they’re also athletes,” one young woman said.
