Shannon Denise (Robinson) Mabe, the daughter of Piedmont City Councilman Donnie and Janis Robinson, passed away March 31, 2015, in Ft. Worth.
Shannon was born Oct. 19, 1972, in Oklahoma City. She moved to Texas in 1996 to pursue a career in teaching. It was there she met Chris, and they married on March 13, 1999.
Shannon was born to be a teacher. In 18 years in the classroom, Shannon did more than just teach her students. She loved them, encouraged them and prayed for their well being and success.
Shannon fought cancer until her body could no longer give what her heart and spirit desired. It is beyond difficult to know that Shannon’s time with us here is over, but we know she was never ours to keep.
She loved us well. Will & Hannah have always been and will always be her pride and joy. Read more →

Mrs. Antwine and Mrs. Davis train and prepare their high school students to work with elementary age children. Read more →
Piedmont soccer had to do something it had never done in its history to overcome Altus Thursday night at Wildcat Field.
Kanton Logan put home the game-winning goal at the 5:02 mark of overtime off a well-placed pass from Dax Hampton to give Piedmont a 4-3 win over Altus, spoiling a gutty comeback from the Bulldogs, and giving Piedmont its first overtime win in the program’s five-year history.
“That whole game it was tough going through their defense,” Logan said. “When we finally got in behind them, it was just one of those deals where it kind of opened up. It was great.”
Piedmont’s Thomas Spencer works his way around an Altus defender Thursday night in Piedmont.
The Wildcats improved to 5-2 overall with the win, and more importantly took another step forward as a program.
“We’ve been in four overtime games and this was our first one to win,” Piedmont head coach Zac Selph said. “I told them, it’s another first for the program and if we keep having firsts every year it’s going to be a good thing.”
The game-winner was Logan’s first of his career and came off a precision pass from Hampton. Read more →
