School gets playground, thanks to young student

PACE -- A school that never had a playground has one today thanks to a graduate. Cate Bilbrey, 11, was disappointed that SS Dixon Intermediate School in Pace didn't have a playground.  So she started a petition, made a video to put online and raised the money to build one.  Workers finished putting the equipment together today. Cate Bilbrey will be going to another school next year but she says she's glad to leave a legacy.
Bilbrey said, "Everybody has to leave one sometime in their life, so I thought, why not do it now?”
Cate told us she was inspired to start the campaign after learning that recess gives children a chance to exercise.  She wanted to help reduce childhood obesity.
