David Bagwell Company Invests In The Future At Heritage Elementary School

Grapevine/Colleyville Independent School District’s Heritage Elementary School is fertile ground for both young minds and young trees. On Wednesday, March 8, David Bagwell Company Landscape Superintendent Taylor Steele and his crew planted two Nuttal Oaks and two lavender Muskogee Crepe Myrtles donated by the local developer on school grounds.

Working in conjunction with Heritage Elementary School PTA President Jodie Wisson and Principal Stacey Voigt, David Bagwell Company jumped at the opportunity to support the local elementary school as well as further beautify the community through tree planting. Since trees and tree planting have become a calling card for his developments, the local developer felt his company’s participation was a natural fit.

“Our passion for trees is no secret,” Bagwell asserted. “Our Colleyville developments are veritable arboretums. We’ve planted over 40 varieties of North American oak trees, as many as the public botanical gardens of Dallas and Fort Worth, and more varieties of North American maples, hickories and pines than the two combined. We believe, as William Shakespeare said, that in nature we ‘find tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.’ ” Needless to say, we’re pleased Jodie turned to us for assistance with this project.

A dedication ceremony for the trees was held on Friday, May 5, 2006 at Heritage Elementary School. One of the oaks was dedicated to James Curtin, a former student who passed away as a result of liver failure. The other oak was dedicated to Dara Bush. Dara, a dedicated child advocate and parent of two current Heritage Elementary and Heritage Middle School students, died suddenly at age 41 from an abdominal aneurysm. Each of these individuals hold a special place in the hearts and minds of everyone associated with the school, which makes the dedications all the more meaningful.
