Stories from the Arlington Rotary Club
 
In 1994, the Rotary Club of Arlington established the
Webb Elementary Scholarship and this month one of the
recipients, Veronica Rodriguez has become a club member.
 
Veronica was a sixth grader at Webb Elementary in 1999 and graduated from Bowie High School in 2005. With the assistance of the $750 scholarship, she went on to attend college at Brookhaven Community College in Dallas and two years later she attended the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in International Political Economy.
 
Mayor Jeff Williams tells his club
about all the great things
happening in Arlington. 
 
Kurt Bartley introduced our speaker for the day, Mayor Jeff Williams. Williams complimented our club on our services and spoke about the recent energy outages and ERCOT. He showed us the storm recovery website: arlingtontx.gov/ stormrecovery.org. Here, one can learn about where to go to receive help with food, shelter, storage, insurance questions, and help with pipe damage. Williams mentioned that we didn’t open stadiums for warming centers because there was no guarantee that those places wouldn’t have a power outage. He was thankful to all those city workers who helped deliver water to hospitals and other rescue services, plus the workers at vaccination centers. City workers also helped apartment complexes with out-of-state owners deal with water/pipe problems. He was also thankful to our community for keeping us all informed about the state of our water, and the number for help is 817-459-6777.
