The Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District’s “Adopt-a-teacher” program has a special Longhorn Council connection
Scouter Ping Mayo, from the Mid-Cities District (formerly Roadrunner District), recognized a name listed on the HEBISD teacher appreciation adoption list. Memories of dedicated Scouters and friends from Longhorn Council filled Mrs. Mayo’s head. Elisa Zahn-Boltz, teacher at HEBISD’s Harwood Junior High, is a proud LHC Scouter and is the teacher Ping adopted.
Elisa’s late father, Mr. George Zahn, was a dedicated LHC Scouter and friend whom Ping immediately thought of when she saw the HEBISD teacher list. Mr. Zahn and his wife taught their daughter Elisa the joy of Scouting at Longhorn Council. Elisa went on to join her dad on Wood Badge training courses and is continuing the Scouting legacy with her own kids. Ping remembers the warm father-daughter team from her WB SR-663 course. She knows Elisa’s family well from church at FUMC in Hurst.
To show her appreciation for this fantastic HEBISD teacher, Ping delivered a basket full of goodies and homemade items. We join Ping in saying that we too appreciate teachers, especially when they are part of our Scouting family.
