Kirby students and teacher

Kirby’s Advanced Technology students are eighth graders (l-r) Zachary Hinojosa, Jonathan Solorzano, Adrian Jimenez, Noe Gallo, Bryan Silva, Carlos Garza, and Alejandra Valdez.

The advanced technology education class at Kirby Middle School participated in the Freedom Pen Project. It is sponsored by members of the SawMill Creek Woodworkers Forum. Members of woodworker’s association and schools from around the country turned pens to send to our servicemen and women who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. Robert Tienor, the Technology Education teacher, says that "this is a small token of our appreciation for their service to our country". His students turned 60 pens for this project; they used various hardwoods provided by the woodworks association. The kids had a great time making the pens. Mr. Tienor is retired Air Force and is proud to have worked on this project. He is also very proud of his students’ efforts.
