Keep Irving Beautiful and the City of Irving Parks Department teamed up with the leadership team of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society for a paint project at Fritz Park on July 8.
A total of twelve highly motivated, hard-working students completed 48 hours of volunteer service in painting the two pavilions near the playground area. The group did a great job, and their results will be enjoyed by many park visitors. KIB has enjoyed partnering with Phi Theta Kappa for several years, and is looking forward to continuing that relationship for many more to come.
North Lake History Professor and KIB Board Member Dr. Yolanda Romero is the faculty advisor for the Alpha Zeta Eta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.
“I have to commend our officer team for taking the initiative to partner with KIB on this project,” Romero said. “Our Vice President of Service, Jenny Maique, met with KIB staff to plan and coordinate the event. The officers recruited other members to participate, and chose July 8, their day off between the two summer sessions, to complete the project. As always, they showed great leadership skills and the ability to work together as a team. I am very proud of them.”
KIB would like to thank Parks Supervisor Troy Crawford for providing logistic help and direction in making this another successful project.
