An unfortunate side effect of Texas's last harsh winter storm for Dew ISD was a fire breaking out, destroying their single building campus library. Commercial roofing experts Coryell Roofing and Construction heard about the problem and stepped up to help.

A company's ongoing success is often a byproduct of the unselfish relationships they establish in the communities they serve. This has been a principle followed by leading Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas commercial roofing experts, Coryell Roofing and Construction. Continuing the company's momentum in this area, Coryell recently sent its representatives to Teague, Texas's Dew ISD, with Gift Card donations to help its teachers recover after this newest obstacle they faced. The school's entire library caught fire during the last winter storm. Students were out of school at the time of the event for Winter Break, and teachers were also not in the building due to the weather. Dew ISD is just a one school campus, Pre-K through 8th grade, with 160 students, making the library even more important. The faculty were very pleased to receive help from the company. The gift cards were delivered in person by Coryell employees Blake Cooper, Lisa Olson, and Wendell Olson.

"We are super excited and humbled about the donation, and I couldn't believe y'all drove down, in-person, to give them to us!" remarked a thrilled Elizabeth Jernigan, Dew ISD librarian. "We can't wait to use them and will put them to good use. We are so thankful for the generosity y'all have shown us, and I am humbled to be at the heart of it all, so thank you for the gift cards, but also for bringing them to us."

Coryell Texas Education Consultant Blake Cooper commented about the donation, "As a former building principal and superintendent, to have a campus library be destroyed due to a fire would be devastating. Students need books to read and a place to explore books of interest. I am proud to work for a company that thinks about doing right by kids!"

Coryell specializes in commercial, institutional, and industrial roofing, with diverse clients across the region.
