Box 509 Malakoff, Texan 75148 May I take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you in the Hen- derson County Livestock Association for giving me the privilege of represen- ting you in the Miss Rodeo Texas Teen Pageant. There is not enough space to tell you how many rewards and ex- periences I received from this trip. It was truly an opportunity of a lifetime. I represented you to the best of my ability. I didn't come hack the winner; but I did come back with a trophy con- sisting of many memories and a lot of knowledge that only this experience could give me. I really learned a lot about people and the life of the agriculture and rodeo world. I made fr- iendships that I will treasure for the rest of my life. So again let me say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Shelly Surls .
