Southside kindergarten teacher Jessica Waggoner's student teacher Karen Hix brought in a very special person to visit her class - her father Billy Hix -- who spoke to the interested students about rockets and rocket fuel.
Billy Hix performed experiments and shot off paper rockets that the students had made. Here Hix prepares his rocket fuel experiment.
Karen Hix, Aidan Cantrell and Billy Hix watch excitedly as Aiden's paper rocket flies skyward.
As Hix was saying his goodbyes he heard a Natalie Albarran saying, "Mr. Hix! Mr. Hix!". "Yes?" he replied. "Mr. Hix, you are my hero!"
