Allan Shivers Library Honors Kay Hicks


Kay Hicks, owner of Somerset Stables on FM 1746 in Woodville. was honored recently at the children's summer reading program at the Allan Shivers Library. Her mother, Mrs. Rosemary Bunch, has served as the library's director for the past twenty years. For each of those years at her own expense, Ms. Hicks has trailered ponies to the rewards party honoring children who complete the reading program requirements. The pony rides have gained a reputation as the highlight of the party, and the children eagerly anticipate this event. County Judge Jacques Blanchette and Brian Shivers, son of former Governor Allan Shivers. presented a framed certificate of appreciation to Ms. Hicks for her generous long-time service to the library. Her sister from England, Philippa Mols, also attended the event. (Jim Powers Photo)
