Spirit Lake

During the CNN Heros selection process in 2010 one of the eight grade teachers of Spirit Late Middle School assigned each student one of the 25 CNN Heros nominated as a project to find out as much information about them as they could and give a speech about them.

The founder of Houston Ground Angels, Kathy Broussard was one of those nominated for this award and she was assigned to a couple of those students. We were excited to receive the letters from two of those students and list them here and say Thank You Shauna and Barron.

Thank You Spirit Lake Middle School and the teacher or teachers who decided to use the CNN Heros program as a teaching tool for your students.

Dear Kathy Broussard,
My name is Shauna. I am thirteen years old and I live in Spirit Lake, Iowa. I am in eighth grade. Our school's name is Spirit Lake Middle School. These past two weeks we've been looking up the twenty-five CNN heroes. We gave a speech about what our hero has done and we presented their video. I was assigned to research you, and I learned a lot of things from you.
I would like to congratulate you for all you have done for cancer patients in need. I was surprised someone found something for these people in need. I wouldn't have thought of helping those poor people without your help. Because of you people are staying alive. So I thank you for all the people who can't thank you properly.
Sincerely, Shauna





Dear Kathy Broussard,
My name is Barron. I am from Spirit Lake (Okoboji), Iowa. I'm an eighth grader at Spirit Lake Middle School. We have just finished a Language Arts assignment where my class and I studied you and other CNN heroes. My hero was you, I am very glad it was too.
I now would like to congratulate you for your success at helping the human race, and with your CNN nomination. When I grow up I hope to be half the person you are. You are truly a hero to me and many others.
I was thoroughly surprised when you weren't included in the top 10, however, I am glad you got a reward almost as good as money to help your organization. You received recognition and support from your community and many others. That I think is just as good.
