Corsicana — Dawson Ex-Students Association

The Dawson Ex-Students Association sponsored a scholarship seminar at the Dawson High School for seniors and their parents Saturday, Feb. 2. The goal of the seminar was to provide information to parents and seniors about scholarships and financial aid. Crystal Nicholson, Navarro College Financial Aid Counselor, gave a very informative presentation on scholarships. She also presented an overview of the Federal Financial Aid Form (FAFSA) and answered questions. Carolyn Barton, DISD Senior Advisor, stated that this is one of the best groups of seniors she has had the pleasure of working with and feels they will all do well in college.

Dawson’s General Scholarship Application can be found at the DISD Web site http://www.dawsonisd.net and must be completed and turned in to Carolyn Barton, Dawson High School by May 1, 2013.

The Dawson Ex-Students Association awards three $1,000 scholarships each year to deserving seniors. The Scholarship Seminar was part of the association’s effort to provide assistance to the students of Dawson’s schools. Information about the Ex-Students Association can be found on the DISD website in the “Former Bulldog” section of Facebook them at Dawson Ex-Students Association. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Dawson Ex-Students Association can contact Don Sykes at (972) 227-4570 or email him at donsykes@flash.net.

Kinsloe House

The Art Committee, headed by Barbara Jones, with committee members Mable Foster, Donna Ingham, Betty Partain, Theresa Shugart, Barbara Watkins and Christine Williams will present the talented Jo Skewes who will review the book “How Georgia became O’Keefe — Lessons on the Art of Living” by Karen Karbo. The author’s fresh and revealing take on the epic life of Georgia O’Keefe is both entertaining and profoundly inspirational. This is not a typical biography but a contemporary reassessment of the life of Georgia O’Keefe. Local artwork will be on exhibit for those attending to view.

Members are in for a treat, but must make their reservations or cancellations by noon, Feb. 11 by calling the Kinsloe House at (903) 874-5791.

Also, in commemoration of its 75th anniversary, the Kinsloe House has compiled a new cookbook for its members and people in the community.

It will have favorite old recipes as well as wonderful new ones. Recipes from the previous two cookbooks, which were so popular, are included. The committee has worked diligently to make this the best cookbook ever. There are over 400 recipes included in this new endeavor.

Cookbooks will be $20 and will be available in April. Call the Kinsloe House at (903) 874-5791 to reserve your copy.
