For over 70 years and under various names, the Shorkey Center has offered educational and therapeutic services for children with special needs.

This year marks their 25th annual holiday card campaign, which executive director Araina Daniels said is one of the organization’s largest fundraisers.

After Hurricane Harvey, officials found mold growing inside Central High School buildings, as previously reported by The Examiner.

Freshman still meet on the campus in buildings that weren’t affected. Tenth through 12th-grade students are meeting at the building that used to be Stephen F. Austin Middle School, according to BISD spokesperson Nakisha Burns.
