Chisum Independent School District (CISD) and Cross Branch Cowboy Church closed the 2012 school year by joining forces to afford greater opportunities for young people in the Paris area. Soon, portions of the CISD campus will receive a “face lift” as Cross Branch Cowboy Church has agreed to complete and establish a working arena.
Through the use of this arena, CISD and Cross Branch Cowboy Church hope to provide students and others in the community with fun and educational alternatives such as an equestrian-style “5th Quarter” following ballgames, basic horsemanship classes, “Jackpots” and Junior Livestock Shows, play days, and a rodeo club.
The objective of this new found partnership is to promote responsibility, courage, and overall self-esteem in young people through training and exposure to a variety of activities involving horses and livestock. It is believed that as 4H and FFA have aided in the development of responsible and productive citizens in our community, this venture will likewise serve to better the children and Lamar County at large.
Work is currently being planned and scheduled with anticipation of the initial phases of development being completed prior to the end of the spring semester, thereby allowing for the start of arena-related activities before the end of the current school year.
Expect additional public notices with further development.
