Conley children know how to share
Published 5:07 pm Monday, December 13, 2010
Jackson, Reece and Brenna Conley have always been taught to share with others, so when the kids won a bicycle in the Jones-Wheat Elementary School PTO raffle, they knew that they wanted to share with another child. Having bikes of their own, they wanted to give the bike to a child who did not have a bicycle. They are pictured above with Memorial Hospital occupational therapist Demecca Fillingame, who with her husband, Patrick, recently began the process of adopting six children, five of whom are siblings. Mrs. Fillingame serves Jones-Wheat students, so the Conley children wanted to join in the school-wide effort of assisting this family this Christmas season. Jackson, a third-grader, Reece, a first-grader and Brenna, a pre-kindergarten student, are the children of Gina and Brandon Conley of Bainbridge.
