Nashville Bound!!

A big CONGRATULATIONS go out to Shelbey Fox, Christina Calfee, and Tricia Boller! Do you remember these girls? They are the ones from West Nodaway School that participated in the FCCLA speech contest at NW and made it to state. The state competition was held in Columbia this week and the girls placed first!! (They said they even had some judges in tears.) This means they are headed to nationals with the story about the Foundation and about drinking and driving. Can you believe that! That is just awesome! Abby's story and the works of the Foundation are going to reach even more people! Just think if someday the Foundation could be a state-wide or even nation-wide program. Thanks for getting our word out girls and congrats!

I'll be letting everyone know about any fundraising efforts these girls will be working on in order to raise money for their trip in July.


  1. That is absolutely wonderful news !! I am so proud of these girls for taking on the challenge of drunk driving and wish them well in the next phase of competition. I thank them for choosing my Abrielle as part of their story.

  3. This is wonderful news. I hope that they go far with the message of drinking and driving. It would be great to even grow larger and reach more children.

  4. Such GREAT news to hear, both for these girls and the Foundation!!! We will pray for their success and safety as they work towards their goals so they may promote the importance of driving sober and its effects. We will also pray for compassion that people will be touched by Abby's story across the states so her programs may help other families there also.
