Lucas Energy right in sponsoring Loni
I was very upset to see the letter to the Editor from Ms. Witzkoski, dated May 3, in regards to the check given to Loni Lester, from Lucas Energy.
First of all to see a adult write a letter and print a under age’s name without any consent is beyond my my principals and some laws.
Next it was Lucas Energy who approached Loni and not Loni or her parents who went to them!
I have known Loni Kay Lester since the minute she came into the world. She is such a ray of sunshine no matter what she participates in and gives it her all and has a family and dear friends as myself that are there to cheer her on. But for a “Adult” to write and make it sound as if Loni and her Family went to Lucas Energy and asked for sponsorship is just above what the Lester Family is about. If anything its the oppisite, they give very freely to anyone who they realize are in need.
Lucas Energy saw a strong willed, faith driven by God and a National winner for High School Rodeo Nationaly. If anything Loni works hard and along side is her Dad and Mom and extended family and friends backing her. This is what Lucas Energy saw!
The Oil Companies have been very generous, the Local Youth Stockshow was supported by them. That will help some of the youth continue with their education plans. We have not had our 2012 Scholarship program from Gonzales High School, so their could be some scholarships there presented.
I guess what the bottom line is no adult should belittle a young person, like Loni Kay Lester who has worked hard and did not ask Lucas Energy they chose Loni on their own.
I am so proud of how Loni handles herself and rides with the faith of the Lord, her parents, family and dear friends! I know Loni plans on going to college and I know one day in the future we will see her in the Pro Rodeo circut and be in Las Vegas!
I will always encourage and help the youth in the community and stand up for them. I worked at Gonzales High School for 9 years as a secretary for the two High School Counselors and saw so many great young people. They just need encouragrement and love to help them go on! Love you Loni Kay and I am so proud of you and all you have done and the beautiful young lady you are!
