Lindale ISD fourth-grade student Cohen Jennische did not want a typical birthday gift this year from her friends and family. Instead, for her 9th birthday, Jennische asked her friends if they could give her school supplies and backpacks for those in need.
Jennische was able to collect five backpacks full of school supplies to go to LISD students in need at the beginning of the school year. The gifted backpacks will provide supplies for two fourth-grade students, a second-grade and a third-grade student, as well a kindergarten student.
"What a servant's heart that Cohen displayed," LISD Deputy Superintendent Jamie Holder said. "I am so impressed with her act of generosity and what a great display of paying it forward!"
