WHEREAS, Ozny Lucia Olvera has earned the distinction of being salutatorian at Galena Park High School, and for achieving this auspicious honor she is truly deserving of special legislative recognition; and WHEREAS, Earning the right to call oneself "salutatorian" requires not only intellect and aptitude, but four years of dedication to the highest academic standards; the salutatorian must display a firm understanding of the entire curriculum, from math and science to language arts to social studies, while demonstrating an unwavering commitment to education; and WHEREAS, The salutatorian serves as a role model and leads by example, combining a steadfast vision of excellence with a tenacious enthusiasm; the competition for this coveted honor is often fierce, although the spirit of the rivalry remains rooted in a tradition of goodwill and the rewards of the countless hours of study and preparation are myriad; and WHEREAS, The daughter of Ymelda Olvera, Ms. Olvera has earned the respect and admiration of her friends and classmates at Galena Park High School, and as she prepares to continue her education at Bowling Green State University in Ohio it is most fitting to pay tribute to her for this outstanding accomplishment; now, therefore, be it RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 78th Texas Legislature hereby congratulate Ozny Lucia Olvera on being named the 2003 salutatorian at Galena Park High School and wish her well in all her future endeavors; and, be it further RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be prepared for Ms. Olvera as an expression of high regard by the Texas House of Representatives.
