Photos from the Capitol

By Mark D. Roberts | Saturday, November 21, 2009

Yesterday, my family and I visited the Texas Capitol, the center of the state government in Austin, the capital. We were there for my daughter to be reconized for getting second place in the National History Day competition last summer. (She was second in the Junior Division, Individual Performance.) So, yesterday, the State Board of Education honored Kara and others from Texas who did well in the competition. I thought I’d share a couple of photos.

First, Kara and her fellow winners. Next to Kara in the blue jacket is her 8th grade history teacher, Mr. Bryan Degner. “Coach” Degner is an amazing teacher, whose commitment and willingness to invest hundreds of extra hours helped Kara to make it all the way to the national competition.

    A big congratulations to Kara!

    Good job visiting the Capitol, too. If one can afford the trip, I think everyone should at least see their state’s capitol.

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment.

I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
