Rowlett HOSA delivered Thanksgiving dinner to each Rowlett fire station to express appreciation for the fire fighters. HOSA students collected money in the weeks before Thanksgiving to provide turkey, ham, and all of the fixings.
Originally, HOSA was going to make pancakes for the firefighters on Sept. 11 but were unable to, sponsor Richelle Murrell said.
“We did it to show appreciation to the firemen for all that they do,” Mrs. Murrell said. “We wanted to recognize them for all of their efforts for 9/11, but we ran out of time.”
Students delivered the turkeys and the ham and were able to tour the facility and take pictures with the firemen. They also spoke with the firefighters and learned about their jobs and different experiences they had. Students were informed on how to become a firefighter and what to expect on the job.
“This was the first time HOSA did something community-oriented,” Mrs. Murrell said. “The firemen were so appreciative and excited and surprised so we’ll probably be doing it again next year.
