Shallowater is a great small town. It has amazing school, nice people ,and the city is expanding rapidly pulling new business into town. Shallowater is a close knit community. The town rallies behind the school, be it sports or academics. I would improve shallowater be bringing new stuff to do in shallowater, it can get quite boring.
I have grown up in Shallowater my entire life. It is a close bit town with a smiling face around each corner. Friday night football games is something to look forward to, to bring the community together. The school district is amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better place to grow up in.
