  H.R. No. 116
 
 
 
R E S O L U T I O N
         WHEREAS, The Kilgore College Rangerettes organization is
  marking its 75th anniversary in 2015, and this milestone provides a
  fitting opportunity to honor this beloved Texas institution; and
         WHEREAS, Founded in 1939 to fulfill the twofold purpose of
  attracting more women to the school while also keeping fans in their
  seats during halftime at football games, the precision drill team,
  the first of its kind in the world, was created by physical
  education instructor Gussie Nell Davis; since the retirement of
  Miss Davis in 1979, the Rangerettes have been led by just two
  directors, Deana Covin from 1979 to 1993 and Dana Blair, the current
  director and the first to have also been a Rangerette; in 1948,
  Denard Haden became the team's first choreographer and developed
  innovative patterns and steps that are still used by dance and drill
  teams today; and
         WHEREAS, This elite troupe has delighted audiences
  throughout the nation and abroad in dynamic shows featuring high
  kicks and vintage red, white, and blue costumes; the Rangerettes
  performed at inauguration festivities for Presidents Barack Obama
  and George W. Bush, marched in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parades, and
  participated in such events as the Chinese New Year celebration in
  Singapore, the Saint Patrick's Day Parade and Lord Mayor's Ball in
  Dublin, Ireland, and Carnival celebrations in Nice, Paris, and
  Cannes, France; and
         WHEREAS, For three-quarters of a century, members of the
  Kilgore College Rangerettes have served as ambassadors for Kilgore
  College and the Lone Star State, and in doing so, they have built
  the group's well-deserved reputation for excellence; now,
  therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 84th Texas
  Legislature hereby commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Kilgore
  College Rangerettes and extend to all those involved with the
  organization sincere best wishes for the future; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for the Kilgore College Rangerettes as an expression of
  high regard by the Texas House of Representatives.
