Herrera is named PPW Young Careerist

Article Image Alt Text

Maria Herrera was selected as the Young Careerist for the month by Panhandle Professional Women’s Club.

She works as a loan officer for Perryton National Bank. She considers this her profession and would advise others to enter it, saying, “Absolutely, working for Perryton National Bank has given me the blessing to help others achieve their goals and dreams, from a new family obtaining their first vehicle to helping others start their new business.”

She believes the key to success for young careerists is to be “willing to help others, determination, and ‘knowledge is power’.”

On suggestions she would give to older careerists, she said, “guide the younger careerists with their professional and personal knowledge.”

Where are they now?... George Brosowske

Article Image Alt Text

The bold footprints left at Perryton High School by George Brosowske have been gone for a short while. The new footprints he has made are just as bold and deep. The pace of these new prints has been moving very fast.

Brosowske graduated from PHS in 2015. Like his brother, Griffin, he had a stellar basketball career during his time here. He was also a gifted baseball player. Like his brother and his parents, Scott and Lisa, he is extremely intelligent. The kind of intelligence that is not common.

Brosowske moved to Lubbock to attend Texas Tech University after graduation. With the swiftness that he used to dash opponent’s hopes on the hardwood, he obtained his undergraduate degree at the speed of sound. He secured that degree in 2017. He then began his pursuit of a bachelor of science degree in nursing in that same year. By 2018, Brosowske had graduated with his BSA. The process only took him three short years.

Where are they now?...Ben Shackelford

Article Image Alt Text

Even though the apple often does not fall far from the tree, the journey during the fall can take several thousand miles and involve making the world a better place in the travel. That’s impressive because even a straight fall from the Shackelford tree creates an amazing person and the journey magnifies that.

Ben Shackleford graduated from Perryton High School in 2005. His parents, Danny and Cindy, have helped educate thousands of kids in Perryton and positively influenced their lives and our community. His parents are lifelong teachers. Their work ethic and drive to better the world around them wore off on their children. Ben answered the call to help defend his country and two months after graduation was in the Marine Corps Boot Camp.
