'Learning for Limbs' kick-off at Everhart Elementary

Today, Students at J.L. Everhart Elementary School in Longview were introduced to a new initiative, called "Learning for Limbs."

Through this initiative, students will learn about the new, independent nonprofit organization LIMBS International, which provides low-cost, durable prosthetics to ease human suffering in developing countries around the world.

Longview's students will benefit from their participation, as it will make them aware of what others who are less fortunate than they are go through, and give them a feeling of satisfaction in helping someone else.

For older students, their goal may be to get an A in reading, pass a specific STAAR test, or earn an Honor Roll designation.

For younger students, goals might include increasing a reading level, learning a specific number of sight words, or earn Honor Roll designation.

When students reach their academic goals, their sponsors will pay their pledge money to be used toward providing prosthetic knees for amputees around the world so that they are able to walk!

Incentives for students collecting sponsorships will be provided through Limbs International and the J.L. Everhart School.
