Former FJHS teachers’ assistant, Donna Mullins, works at this Panama City, Florida, school.

They are working with an organization which will let Mrs. Mullins and the teachers at her school choose inexpensive, high quality used books. Shipping will be free if a certain amount is purchased. If you would like to help with this project, please send your donations to Friona High School, attention NEHS, or leave them in the collection box at the public library or at the school.
