strengthen neighborhood spirit and community-law enforcement partnerships, while sending
a message to criminals Precinct 4 neighborhoods are organized against crime.
Backpacks in Action
Every summer before the kids return to school from the summer break Constable Vaughan
collects backpacks to be filled with school supplies for kids who cannot afford school
supplies. Constable Vaughan accepts donated backpacks at his office which is located at
105 Amber Drive in Comfort.
Robbie’s Bears was named after former Precinct 4 Constable Robbie Pankratz. Constable Pankratz
started this program, but passed away in 2015. Constable Vaughan has continued the program
to honor Robbie Pankratz by collecting stuffed animals throughout the year so that in December
the stuffed animals can be delivered to needy families in the Kendall County area. Constable
Vaughan has seen the positive effect this program has on kids who receive one of “Robbie’s Bears”.
Stuffed animals can be brought to Constable Vaughan’s office at 105 Amber Drive in Comfort.
San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo
Western Art Contest
Constable Vaughan volunteers with the San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo and is member of the
San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo’s Western Art Committee, which recognizes the outstanding
art talents of high school students in the South Texas area. This committee annually awards college
scholarship money to South Texas area students whose submitted Western Art was judged as a Grand,
Reserve, or Art Class Champion during the annual San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo’s
Western Art Judging Contest. In past years the scholarship money awarded by this committee
has ranged from $ 4,000 to over $ 20,000 per student. Art students from Boerne High School,
Comfort High School, Geneva School, as well as several Home Schooled students have received

the San Antonio Livestock Exposition and Rodeo as another way he can help the youth
in Kendall County attend college and also fulfill their dreams.
