    Story Courtesy of: FOX 4 News

    A man who grew up in the city has the ranch and the farm in his blood.

    Shorty Roberson was born and raised in Mesquite, graduated from North Mesquite High School and is a Technical Trainer for Atmos Energy. For 21 years, he's volunteered at the State Fair of Texas on the Youth Livestock Committee. He loves spending 7 to 12 hour days in the Livestock Barns.

    It was Youth Livestock Judging Day when I covered Shorty as a Hometown Hero. More than 400 junior high and high school students from across Texas learned how to judge cattle, sheep, pigs and lambs in the Livestock Pavilion. They are learning from Shorty. He's one of 400 volunteers on the committee. 

    Many of the young Texans will be future farmers, ranchers and members of the agriculture industry.

    Texas is number 1 in the nation in producing cattle, hay, wool and cotton. Shorty hopes you'll stop in the livestock barns on the southeast side of the Fairgrounds and talk to the exhibitors. There's a lot to learn and I had a fascinating time there.

    The Livestock Barn helps create scholarship money for the students who attend the 5 DISD schools in the shadow of Big Tex.

    “The Salvation Army is a place of hope,” said Atmos Energy Board of Directors member Bob Best, who is also a Salvation Army Advisory Board member. “This great organization has a passion for the less fortunate: caring for the poor, feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless and befriending the friendless. People who serve in The Salvation Army go into places others would prefer not to: impoverished neighborhoods, jails and prisons, hospital rooms, nursing homes and natural disaster sites.”

    Atmos Energy employees throughout the D-FW metroplex participated in a "Week of Giving" to benefit both The Salvation Army and United Way.

    Employees raised a total of $774,056 for both organizations.

    “We have the best of all worlds this year,” said President and CEO Mike Haefner. “United Way makes a difference through the funding of so many organizations. The Salvation Army’s focus on addiction, homelessness and poverty allows that great organization to help customers and residents in every zip code Atmos Energy serves. And our company matches every employee donation dollar for dollar.”

    “Giving back to the 1,500 communities we serve in eight states is part of Atmos Energy’s DNA,” added Utility Operations Senior Vice President David Park. “Our spirit of giving is unique. We are investing in our communities from the ground up.”

    Events included a putt-putt golf tournament, a cake walk, a Bingo and Texas Hold ’Em Tournament, and the ever-popular employee appreciation carnival balloons. Fundraising campaigns continue through Atmos Energy's six divisions and the Customer Support Center.
