      Shoutout to our women's powerlifting team! They earned third place this year and look to be even stronger contenders next year.

      I am really looking forward to attending this college. I may be an 8th grader, but my main goal is to attend this university. Ever since I was a young child, I've always wanted to visit the campus and attend it when I get older. Next year I will be going to Cotton Valley Early College High School here in Fabens. I am dedicated to my academics, and to my athletics. I love your softball team as well. Blaire Luna is my inspiration!! I play softball myself, I'm also the starting pitcher, and I'm a team leader and team captain. When I watch Ms. Luna play, I want to be just like her. One day I'd like to meet her, and tell her that she is a big role model in my life. I'm really looking forward to meeting some of the professors here, too. I like strict teachers. I learn more, and well when I have teachers that are very strict. Hopefully I get to visit this campus to see what it is like. Thank you.

      I'm so glad to know that my 20+ years of service to UT is as important as Quidditch and power lifting. Thank you for lighting the tower and for lumping my career in with other significant contributions to UT!
