SHEPHERD — The Lady Pirates pulled off a miracle on the mound, but not during a game.
The “Mound Miracles” team consists of players that may never otherwise have the opportunity to feel what it’s like being the one on the field getting cheered for.
Shepherd ISD, the Shepherd community, and the Shepherd Youth League have come together to make sure every child is awarded the opportunity to be included. All people, including those with a disability, have value and are respected and welcomed.
Shepherd Intermediate School Assistant Principal De Richardson and her husband, Justin, have not only brought this opportunity to the district, but have been the best coaches these kids could ask for. We hope this sets the foundation for many, many more years to come.
Shepherd ISD would like to give a big thank you to the Shepherd High School varsity softball team and Coach Suzon Martin and her staff for coming to help out with the Shepherds Youth League-Angel Division.
