On Tuesday, January 23, 2018, Leon Extension Education Association (LEEA) met for their monthly meeting at the AgriLife Office in Centerville, TX. During the meeting awards were distributed by Richard Parrish, AgriLife Ag Agent to all LEEA participants and their families and friends, who completed Walk Across Texas for the 8 weeks period ending in December, 2017. There were 3 teams — captains were Gail Huffine, Normangee EEC, Nyanza Price, Oakwood EEC and JoFran Edwards, AgriLife Office. There were 8 teammates per team. The total mileage walked for all was 5777.56 miles. That is enough miles to walk from Orange to El Paso and back 3 times plus an additional 779.58 miles. The average miles per walker were 240.73. That is a lot of walking. What a way to stay healthy and have fun! Each participant was awarded a certificate, cooling towel and a medal (bronze-3rd place, silver-2nd place and gold-1st place). Congratulations to all who participated. Accepting the awards at this LEEA meeting were Jackie Morrow, Oakwood EE, Richard Parrish, AgriLife Office, Nyanza Price, Oakwood EE, Gail Huffine, Normangee EE, J.P. Borah, Normangee EE.
