And further Congratulations to Cody and to DeLeon High School for making it to State in One Act Play Competition for "The Beggar's Opera"!

A portion of the article in the Abilene Reporter News --
"Saturday was an emotional day for the cast of De Leon High School's "The Beggar's Opera." While the students were competing in a regional UIL one-act play contest in Abilene, they were thinking of a classmate in the hospital following a serious traffic accident on Easter.

Students dedicated their performance to their classmate Kelsey Menzel, who was undergoing a third surgery for her injuries, and then went on to qualify for the state University Interscholastic League one-act play contest.

"We have a tight-knit group that can pull together through anything," said Terra Jobe, De Leon High School theater director. "They were able to prove that this week."

Menzel, who was to have been in the play, is listed in stable condition at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth."

We're sending lots of special prayers Kelsey's way and know she was with the group in spirit last Saturday.
