 1-9     head of blond hair; and

1-13     grandparents, Frank and Molly Homer; and
1-14           WHEREAS, Hanna will no doubt wear as much maroon as she does

1-16     from Texas A&M University in 1984 before earning his M.B.A. from
1-17     Angelo State University in 1989, while Hanna's mother, Jennifer,

1-20     Independent School District; and

1-24     it is with great pleasure that the members of this chamber formally
 2-1     announce the birth of a new citizen of the Lone Star State and
