Chaves County Republican Women visit three local schools

Each year the Chaves County Republican Women donate dictionaries to each third grade student in the Dexter, Hagerman, and Lake Arthur Elementary Schools. Approximately 120 dictionaries are distributed.
For the past several years Candy Ezzell, our representative to the state legislature in Santa Fe, has presented the dictionaries to the students. She also discusses the importance of their knowing the meaning of the words they read and how important it is to study and graduate from high school and college.
