BROWN COUNTY, Texas - A small Brown County Christian school looking to install two school zone signs near a dangerous roadway received a helping hand from the state.
The Texas Department of Transportation last week offered to pay for the signs Victory Life Academy was hoping to place on CC Woodson Road. The school's campus is located along that busy intersection.
Teacher and coach Rick Phelps launched a GoFundMe page on Friday to raise $7.000 to help purchase and install the equipment.
But the assistance from TxDOT lifts an economic burden for the school.
"Since we've already had one of those lights paid for, that just means we need another $2,500 to get the second light put up," Phelps said on Monday. "We're really excited about that."
Phelps called TxDOT's gesture a blessing for the school.
