The Yellow Rose Branch of the Association for Childhood Education International at Texas A&M University-Kingsville received the Best Community Service Award at a recent international conference.

President Courtney E. Reed, a master’s student in human development and family studies from San Antonio, picked up the award along with senior human science students Dina Ambriz, vice president, and Nina Ambriz, secretary. The sisters are from Kingsville and in the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) program.

The Best Community Service Award is based on a review of the nature, scope, creativity and effectiveness of those activities that directly benefit children. It recognizes the chapter for focusing the public’s attention on the rights and needs of children, for actively promoting joint functions with other professional organizations, for applying lessons learned in the classroom to develop practical and beneficial community service projects and for inspiring action and awareness.

Some of the group’s community service projects included sanding pews at a local church, providing snacks and drinks for several university departments during Week of the Classroom Teacher, selling bracelets as a fundraiser to bring attention to child abuse and collecting clothing and other items for homeless shelters. Some members of the group created a room for nursing mothers at a Head Start Center in Kingsville.
