Like Mother, Like Daughter

D.C. Cannon Principal Angela House starts her day like any normal mother. She makes sure her kids are ready for a good, full school day. She goes to work, and does the same thing for the elementary school kids that she is responsible for.

Angela is used to seeing the fruits of her labor, watching young people grow up and go through elementary, middle school, high school, and beyond. Now, Angela is getting a front row seat experience with her daughter, Bree, a student who’s just down the street from D.C. Cannon.

Bree is a student at Ford High School and has just been accepted by Dallas Baptist University. An all-round student success story, Bree is involved in countless activities on campus and has survived many personal life challenges that tested the faith and resolve of her and her family.

Local Eagle Scout gives back to Quinlan school

Local Boy Scout Nicholas Conaghan from Royce City’s Scout Troop 312 chose to build a Gaga Ball pit for the students of Butler Intermediate.

The new pit is located in the middle of a large, open area of the playground behind Butler Intermediate, making it the newest piece of equipment for children returning to school to enjoy during recess and free periods.

The game, Gaga Ball, is very similar to dodge ball.

“What it is … it is very similar to dodge ball whereas if you get hit by the ball you’re out. Except it’s a lot safer because it’s only waist down.

A life and legacy through football and relationship

You may remember a coach or a teacher that really inspired you, someone you really liked not because they were easy to work with, but because they were tough but fair, and kind of fun and maybe, just maybe, even cool!

Coach Mike Barton used to be the head coach at Thompson Middle School.

Barton now helps out in the athletic department and teaches health. Barton is also an Assistant Coach.

“Kids here like me and I don’t know why!” laughed Barton. “I try to form relationships but I think they like the structure. It was a pretty good program when I was there. It still is a good program.” 

Whenever he’s away from Thompson Middle School, Barton and a few members of the athletic department connect at Ford High School.
