At the age of three, she taught herself to play the piano and the fiddle, at age 10. Her music has been related to that of Patsy Cline, Reba McEntire, Anne Murray, Floyd Kramer and Karen Carpenter.
American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization, which is completely funded through donations. It was originally founded in 1881, by Clara Barton and a group of acquaintances.
The Big Country Branch of the American Red Cross, located in Abilene, is part of the Nolan County United Way. Tim Cox, American Red Cross representative, spoke to the teachers at Sweetwater Intermediate School.
