West Memorial Tiger Sharks
West Memorial Tiger Sharks finished out their swim season with a win in their division this year. The team was undefeated and took home the trophy
for their division. Please congratulate any team members you see for a great season. Well done.
Let’s talk about it….
The West Memorial Civic Association has a duty to enforce neighborhood
regulations. These typically include violations of deed restrictions,
collection of annual assessments and related fees. The HOA Board’s
authority is established in state law for the purpose of maintaining
property values and quality of life. Enforcement proceeds along a defined
path that, to be fair, must be consistently applied. The process often
begins with a letter to the homeowner explaining the violation, which if
ignored, may eventually end up in a lawsuit. Fortunately, most violations
are resolved quickly following receipt of a letter. In rare circumstances the
Board sends the matter to its attorneys. The attorneys’ first objective is to
negotiate a settlement. Failing that, the Board must consider a lawsuit.
The Board positively hates to involve attorneys because its objective is
compliance not penalty. The attorney path is costly and slow and the fees
must eventually be collected from the homeowner, our neighbors. While a
case is pending the problem is not going away. The Board is eager to meet
with homeowners to negotiate a compliance plan but that process must be
initiated by the homeowner. A reasonable solution can usually be agreed,
especially when illness, loss of employment or other calamity is involved. The
Board meetings are held on the 4 th Tuesday of each month (excluding May &
December) beginning at 7 PM at the community clubhouse on Kingsland Blvd.
Please remember that any exterior change to your home requires approval
from the Homeowners Association prior to performing the improvement
and/or addition. You can find the governing rules and application process
on the Association website at www.westmemorial.org or by contacting
management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are seeking volunteers for several upcoming projects. More
homeowner participation would be appreciated. Please email
email@example.com for more information or questions.

Memorial residents for outdoor activities. It has playground equipment

approached by a solicitor, please call the Constable’s office at 281-463-
6666. Continue to call this number if you see suspicious person or vehicles.
Do not hesitate to call Harris County Animal Control at 281-999-3191, if
you see animals that are roaming the neighborhood unleashed.
West Memorial Constables
Please make sure you call and report any suspicious behavior. Please file a report for
any stolen or missing property we need to know what is going on in the neighborhood.
Our Constables patrol our subdivision 24 hours a day/seven days a week. Please call

Bus Driving Parents will have the opportunity to further their role in their
student’s education and drive their student’s school on field trips. BDP’s
will be vetted and trained through Katy ISD, as well as be compensated for
the time they drive. Once they’ve earned their Commercial Driver’s License
(CDL), completed training and earned driving hours, BDP’s will be able to
drive students to field trips as often as they want. While the training upfront
can take time, Bus Driving Parents will help to provide an incredible service
to the district and expand learning experiences for students. To apply and

TWENTY-FOUR KATY ISD SCHOOLS EARN
TEXAS HONOR ROLL DISTINCTION
What better way for Katy Independent School District to end the 2018-
19 school year! Out of its 65 campuses, Katy ISD is proud to announce
that 24 of its schools were named a Texas Honor Roll School by the
Educational Results Partnership (ERP).
The 2018-19 Texas Honor Roll includes:
Elementary: Alexander, Creech, Griffin, Holland, Kilpatrick, Randolph,
Shafer, Stanley, Williams, Wilson and Wolman.
Junior High: Beck, Beckendorff, Katy, McMeans, Memorial Parkway,
Seven Lakes, Tays and WoodCreek.
High School: Cinco Ranch, Mayde Creek, Seven Lakes, Taylor and
After an extensive analysis of student data, ERP found that these Katy ISD
schools were clear leaders in getting students to grade level and beyond.
The 2018-19 Texas Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle
and high schools that consistently demonstrate high levels of student
academic achievement, improvement in student outcomes over time and
a closing of the achievement gaps. For high schools, the Texas Honor Roll
recognition includes measures of college readiness. This year, the program
recognized 855 higher performing schools across the state. These schools
become an accepted example to other school districts seeking to learn
and replicate the best practices employed at these campuses. Katy ISD
schools will be provided with a banner to display at their campus.

Katy Chamber B2B Expo Hits the
Mark for Business
‘Unique opportunity,’ ‘educational,’ ‘great networking event,’ ‘fun,’ ‘wellorganized,’
‘a success,’ ‘informative’… not a bad list of descriptions for
any event! And, yet, those were some of the comments from participants
about the first Katy Area Chamber of Commerce Business to Business
(B2B) Expo, an event that featured 43 exhibitors and 200 attendees.
Home is where the heart is.
Not to mention all your stuff.
Let me help you get the protection you need.
I know home insurance. I can help you protect
your home and everything in it. Call me today to
discuss your coverage options.
1400 W. Sam Houston Pkwy N. #130
Thanks to its success, the Katy Chamber’s B2B Expo probably will land on
the radar for many businesses looking to grow, network and learn about
Katy area businesses. The B2B Expo was held May 16 th at the Wyndham
Houston West - Energy Corridor and organized by Chamber Board of
Directors Margaret Laney and Cristy Fontanilla. The expo included an array
of companies, products and services such as lending facilities, hospitals,
jewelers, the Katy YMCAs, internet companies, graphic designers, storage
facilities, marketers, restaurants, higher education, non-profits and many
more. Attendees could visit business exhibits to network, make connections
and learn how the products/services can assist their own businesses.
The event also featured an information-packed luncheon that provided
valuable intelligence on access to capital issues (provided by the US Small
Business Association) and procurement/purchasing tips from a panel featuring
some the area’s largest employers: Katy ISD, BP, Houston Community College
and Houston Methodist West Hospital. All told, the four-hour B2B Expo/
luncheon seemed to provide the right balance of networking and information.

EAGLE SCOUT AWARD PRESENTED
Russell Leach of Katy has earned the Boy Scouts of America’s highest
advancement award, the Eagle Scout Award and was recognized in
a ceremony on May 5, 2019. A member of Memorial Lutheran Church
Troop 73, Russell is one of only 6 percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the
Eagle rank. Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully
complete a community, church or synagogue-related service project to
earn his Eagle; Russell chose to build orchestra cases for the International
Leadership School of Katy. During Russell’s journey, he also achieved a
Gold Palm by completing an additional 10 merit badges in addition to
the 21 required to Eagle. Troop 73 is proud of Russell’s accomplishments.
