Big Spring ISD would like to announce the continuation of its Memorial Tree Walk project. The effort to honor some of our Steer family members began in the Spring of 2015 when a young lady named Shelly Lopez passed away in a traffic accident and her mother approached the Big Spring ISD School Board to ask if she could plant a tree in her honor. Community Relations Coordinator,George Bancroft says he thought it was a good idea and since then Big Spring ISD decided to expand that idea to include other students, teachers, and staff members of the school district.
Each individual will be memorialized with an oak tree and a bronze plaque set on polished granite. The plaques are $900 and is not covered by the school, but it can be donated to honor a loved one, and the trees are planted at Blakenship Field.
If you have questions about the Memorial Tree Project you can contact George Bancroft via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone by calling the Big Spring ISD Administration Office.
The 2017 Memorial Tree Walk Ceremony is tentatively scheduled for 4:30 PM, Thursday, November 2nd at Blankenship Field. Donations will be accepted through Friday, September 15, 2017.
