The Lead: Trails could spark economic bump, while poverty remains high

May 4, 2012

Citizens are coming together in more than just one way to benefit their communities. 

On Friday's edition of The Lead, we hear from a local representative working to build a 130 mile long pedestrian trail through the region, while a longtime volunteer tells us how he's assisting the Commerce Ministerial Alliance in their battle against poverty. Craig Shelton also reports on the local food bank.

The Lead is the exclusive news magazine for Northeast Texas, covering local human interest topics and serving as a platform for students at Texas A&M University-Commerce to display works during their time as an intern with KETR.
