It was an exciting day at the Center. The wonderful Team from Keller Williams Lake Cities came and built gardens for the students at Achievement Center of Texas. They made one raised so the students in wheelchairs can also plant. They brought them shovels, gloves, planting books, plants, and lots of other goodies to make their gardening venture a fantastic experience. These amazing people are coming back to put in a walkway for students to be able to get wheelchairs and walkers to the other planting beds that they built.
Thank you Keller Williams Lake Cities!

If you attended the gala on Saturday, you saw the beautiful table centerpieces by Stephen Corcoran and the red clay hands made from
“I Love You” sign in clay created by the students at Achievement Center of Texas.
the “I Love You” symbol. The red clay hands were made by the students at Achievement Center of Texas. They are excellent paperweights. We didn’t think to announce that you could take them home so we gathered them up and they are at the center. If you didn’t get one, ask Marilynne, Andrew or Theresa if any remain. Thanks again to Marilynne’s son Andy who “baked” them and to Marilynne for painting them so they’d be ready. The hands are one more example of what our Students are able to create in the proper environment.
Encouraging students with varying disabilities to explore and tap into talents which might otherwise go unnoticed is what Achievement Center of Texas does everyday. Our fundraising efforts make this possible by keeping tuition low and by funding creative exploration which would not otherwise be possible.
