Response to moving Kellerfest

It seems to me that the planners of Kellerfest are following the example of the Keller ISD. Residents of Ft. Worth who are seniors at a Keller ISD school will have their graduation ceremony in Arlington.

More on Madison’s Walkway

And now for the Rest of the Story….

Thanks to Susan McFarland for the wonderful article in the Keller Citizen on Aug. 7 about Madison Arnold and the new Madison’s Walkway to Remember. The memorial sound garden will be a living tribute to her battle with Leukemia.

For those old enough to remember the voice of Paul Harvey on the radio, his famous byline was "and now for the rest of the story." There is a part of the story about the effort to build Madison’s Walkway to Remember that is equally as moving and was not part of the article. You need to hear that as well.

I had the opportunity to hear Susan Arnold explain her story of raising funds and the effort that went into trying to obtain grant money to make the Arnold Family dream a reality.

The Arnold’s, as far as I know, are not wealthy with money. They are like most of us, hard working middle class people. With a determined focus on making their dream of a tribute to Madison a reality, they searched and found grants that Pepsi-Co was offering.

The story of how they secured those grants, going up against some of the largest and most organized charities is phenomenal. It is a story of love and determination that will make every reader realize how perseverance can help us reach a goal. You need to hear this touching story of a parent’s love.

I hope the Keller Citizen and Susan McFarland will share this wonderful story with the readers as a follow up to her original piece.

Thanks

—Ron Jencopale, Keller
