Kids, Incorporated of Amarillo has announced they have recently completed their book entitled Kids, Incorporated: 75 Years of Service to Children & Families in the Texas Panhandle.
The organization contracted the project to local authors, J. Ryan Archer, and his mother Jennifer Archer, with Archer Editing & Writing Services. This is the organization’s first fully documented historical perspective of its 75-year history.
The group will be hosting a press conference to talk more about the book Tuesday at 1:30pm at the Kids, Inc Warehouse at 2201 Southeast 27th Avenue.
Jimmy R. Lackey, President & CEO for Kids, Incorporated writes, “I want to thank Archer Editing and Writing Services for their tireless efforts to make this historical document a reality. Ryan Archer told me on the day we signed the contract he would find things we had not seen. The next day, he emailed me a picture of Mr. Dugger and those kiddos from 1945. I was very close to Mr. & Mrs. Dugger. I had never seen that picture. Ryan lived up to his word time and time again throughout this book.”
The book is a celebration of the organization’s 75 years of providing sports programs to children of all races, classes, and athletic skill levels.
The book may be purchased for $39.99 through the Kids, Incorporated office or at www.kidsinc.com/book.
