NRG employees have positive impact on Fort Bend senior citizens

The folks who work at NRG certainly know how to have a good time. Just ask Fort Bend County senior citizens. Fifty-four NRG volunteers — from the Houston corporate offices and the WA Parish electric plant south of Richmond — treated area seniors to snacks, served them a nice lunch and helped with a spirited game of Bingo as part of the power company’s “PositiveNRG Week” campaign.

NRG provided the food and snacks to seniors at the Senior Citizens Center on Band Road and all the seniors involved with the Fort Bend County Meals on Wheels program.

Fort Bend County has a large and growing population of citizens aged 60 years and above. Nearly 10% are unable to work and live at or below the poverty level.

To help combat the problem, NRG WA Parish partnered with Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels to serve meals, play games and provide maintenance at the Band Road facility.

He said NRG has been sponsoring its PositiveNRG Week program for the past 15 years around the nation.

“We look forward to visiting the Senior Citizens Center in Fort Bend County each year,” he said. “The seniors here are always so appreciative.”

Shonda Thomas, senior center manager, thanked NRG for committing the time and money to help local seniors each year.

“Even when we were closed down due to Covid, NRG came through for us,” she told the crowded banquet hall.

Thomas said NRG donated towels and gift bags for the Secret Santa program during Covid.

NRG also provided gift bags for the Bingo prizes.

“I get emotional just thinking of the impact NRG has on our seniors,” said Thomas, who had to take a moment to compose herself. “Our seniors appreciate NRG so much. I can’t tell you how happy and how special NRG makes our seniors feel. They treat our seniors like royalty.”

Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels currently provides services to 1.2% of this group of citizens, which includes serving more than 360,000 meals to 2,200 seniors across the county.

Your Home for Dentistry

Rick Branek, Fort Bend Senior Meals on Wheels operations manager, said the senior citizens center couldn’t host the traditional get-together during Covid in 2020 and 2021.

“NRG is a big supporter of senior citizens, especially the Meals on Wheels program,” said Kyle Wallis, engineering manager at the WA Parish plant.

Dr. McCrea and Dr. Vo are both graduates of and current Professors at the Herman Hospital based General Practice Residency Program for UTDS Houston. Their goal is to work with each patient to produce the best possible outcome based on that patient’s individual needs and desires.

“So we’re really happy to see so many of our seniors turn up today to have a good time, like they did before Covid came along,” he said.

“Just look at all the smiles.”

BOWIE’S STELLAR SPELLERS

Bowie Elementary School fifth-grader Natalie Heyliger, 10, only had three days to study but it was enough time for her to win first place at her campus spelling bee on Friday.

Students were given their spelling words list on Monday.

At 9 a.m. Friday they were competing in the campus’ library. All 17 contestants were winners of their classroom spelling bees.

Fourth-grader Sophia Palacios finished second. She admits she only spent a day studying the spelling words.

Conner Garza, who finished third, was proud to announce he never looked at the spelling words list.

Natalie will represent the campus at the county spelling bee in February. Sophia is the alternate and will take Natalie’s place if she can’t make it.

Students competing in the campus bee were second-graders Sadie Cerda, Aaron Ibarra and Ismael Pulido; third-graders Zoe Cortez, Elias Guerrero and Christopher Sibrian; fourth-graders Jenni Guzman, Chris Galvan, Yesenia Aguirre, Sophia Palacios, Amy Flores and Saori Zamora; fifth-graders Max Valdez, Valerie Jaquess, Conner Garza, Natalia Heyliger and Aaron Escobar.

Calling the words was Beverly Richard.

Judges were Kay Danziger, Zach Lambert and Wanda Hillhouse. It took Natalia 19 rounds to claim the first-place trophy.

She won by correctly spelling the word “feisty.”

Competition was tough. Seven spellers were out in the first round. One misspelled a word in the second round and three misspelled words in the third round. In the fourth round, however, the students put on their thinking caps and none misspelled a word. Six students remained in competition going into the fifth round. Two misspelled words in that round — “lousy” and “during.” One misspelled “quiet” in the sixth round.

At the beginning of Round 17, word caller Beverly Richard and the judges agreed to ask tougher words.

“We’ve gone through the elementary and we’ve gone through a lot of middle school words, now it’s time for us to move onwards (to tougher words) so we can go home before it gets dark,” she said.

None of the remaining three contestants misspelled words in the next four rounds. Conner misspelled a word in Round 11. Natalia and Sophia went toe-to-toe through the rounds 12-17 before Sophia misspelled “brooding” in round 18.

Richard congratulated all the contestants, telling them they were all winners and should be proud to have won their classroom bees and compete in the campus bee. Three of the contestants had competed in years past. Students may compete through the eighth-grade.
