Haltom City selected three wonderful Hometown Heroes that work tireless­ly on behalf of the citizens in Haltom City. Those recognized were Dana Coffman, Kristi Starn Harris and Christi Pruitt.

Dana Coffman is the Haltom City Parks Board Chair and has been an active member for five years.

Dana and her family are a fixture at all of our city special events where they volunteer wherever we need them.

She has been the Education­al Diagnostician for Haltom Middle since 1997, working with special needs students and helping them get the services they need to be successful. She is also the PTA president of Haltom High School, where she helps to organize fundrais­ing events, including the craft fair and the Drive for Your School with Five Star Ford. She received her undergrad­uate degree in education from UNT and her Masters from Texas Woman’s University.

Christi Pruitt has been working for the City of Haltom City for 12 years and was recently promoted to the Parks & Recreation Director. She is a graduate from Texas Christian University with a degree in Kinesiology and she bleeds TCU purple! Christi is a founding mem­ber of the annual Haltom City Back to School Health Fair, which gives our local elementary and middle school students a free backpack, school supplies, and health screenings. Over the past seven and a half years, her efforts have raised over $170,000! Christi has been happily married to Jeff for 15 years and they have two daughters.

Thank you to Dana, Kristi and Christi for your continued in­volvement in our city and your outstanding examples of com­munity engagement and leadership.
