Disappointment becomes victory

Olivia Deshotels donates over $1,300 she raised for Boys & Girls Club of Bay City and Matagorda County. Club President Janet Peden, Club Director Kimberly Bonner, and board member Steven Reis accepted the generous donation from 10-year-old Olivia on the steps of the Club building on Cottonwood Avenue in Bay City.

Ten-year-old Olivia wanted so badly to be a member of her student council. After the ballots were counted, she wasn’t.

It hurt.
