Yesterday on Thursday, May 6, a celebration was held for the students from Mrs. Mahler's class of George Sanchez High School for their impact on the AAMA community. 

 

Councilman James Rodriguez commended the students for their work in the community by presenting them with certificates and giving inspiring words to strive for their goals and continue to give back to the community.

The students adopted an art project of painting ceiling tiles to benefit young patients of the Texas Children's Pediatric Associates clinic. The Auxiliary to Texas Children's Hospital donated funds to Mrs. Mahler's class for art supplies for the project.  The tiles are displayed on ceilings of the patient rooms in the clinic to help soothe young patients who sometimes endure painful procedures in pediatric clinics.

"The staff of pediatricians here at the TCPA AAMA clinic have developed long-term bonds with the patients in the community and this high school and are thrilled to work together to provide the finest pediatric care.  The students have worked hard with this project and we are so thankful for their effort to serve the community.  Our patients will greatly benefit from their contribution," says Dr. Jamil Joyner of the Texas Children's Pediatric Associates clinic.

The students had the unique opportunity to create something that will help their own children along with other children of the AAMA community. Some of the participating students are patients of the clinic or have young children that benefit from the clinic's services.
