Local youth center bids Godspeed to beloved co-founder

By Jeff Hurt

As co-founder of No Need For Need and director of Roby youth center the Hub for almost a decade, August 22 will be Shannon Wilburn’s last day, as her walk with Christ is taking her to Atlanta.

Wilburn went to San Angelo State on a basketball scholarship, earned her degree, and later became a coach and teacher, a trait she assumed she would do for the rest of her life. When her father, Jim passed away in 2006, thoughts of home and of her mother pulled at her heart.

Raised in a household embracing the teachings of scripture, Shannon learned in her earliest memories the answers to life's struggles are often discovered through prayer. So she prayed about it and simply walked away from a number of coaching opportunities to return home.

Fisher County Historical News

During the month of May, the Fisher County Historical Commission sold tickets for a drawing. The drawing was held to bring a little publicity to the Commission, and hopefully spark some interest in others in the county. President Zenita Gardner drew the winning ticket (see attachment) and it belonged to a long-time member of the Newman community. Jim Lanning has since moved to New York, but he won the book, Veterans of Fisher County!

The Commission met Tuesday night with 15 members and 2 guests present. The night’s presentation was on the History of the Newman Community and enjoyed by all present. Refreshments followed the meeting.
