Former Student Gives Back To Local High School

A Boston woman gives back to an East Texas high school after graduating from there more than 30 years ago. Friday morning Pamela Everhart donated $15,000 to John Tyler High School's College and Career Center in hopes of expanding the program for students.

After graduating from John Tyler in 1976, Pamela went on to graduate from UT Austin and later from law school. Now, she's a lawyer in Boston and credits John Tyler teachers for how far she has come.

"I thought about what I was able to achieve, I could not do anything, but give back to John Tyler and help support the program that [the school] are trying to run here at John Tyler," said Pamela Everhart.

Pamela said the money was donated in memory of her accounting teacher at John Tyler, Mrs. Joan Brooks.
