  join the Texas Historical Commission in recognizing Page
  Southerland Page, which has been named a recipient of the Texas

  been in continuous and substantially similar independent
  operation in the state for at least 50 years with an
  uninterrupted employment history and good standing with the

  preeminent firms in the state; and

  employs more than 500 design professionals around the world, and
  it has been ranked as the nation's 12th-largest architectural and
  engineering design firm; and
         WHEREAS, The success of Page Southerland Page has played an
  important role in the growth and progress of our state, and it is
  truly fitting that this exceptional enterprise be recognized for
