2018 has been quite a year. The crosses that we've all had to carry in our lives may have gotten to be very, very heavy at times but lets take a moment to remember that Jesus came into this world to bear a much greater cross for all of us. I want to thank you for being by my side during the wonderful times and the difficult times. Your love and prayers have really pulled me through. God bless you all and have a blessed Christmas and may we have a new year full of peace, love, health and whatever other blessings God decides to bring to us.
I love you all,
Governor Greg Abbott and the Governor’s Commission for Women today announced seven Texas women, recognized for outstanding achievement and for changing the course of history, have been selected for induction into the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame.
“The Texas Women’s Hall of Fame recognizes and celebrates remarkable Texas women not only for their individual achievements, but also for their contributions to the strength of the Lone Star State, and I am honored to welcome these seven accomplished women as this year’s inductees,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “Each of the honorees is recognized as a trailblazer, an inspiration for the next generation of leaders who will follow in their footsteps in fields such as business, education, military service, philanthropy, public service, sports, the arts and sciences, and more. The First Lady and I would like to thank each of these distinguished honorees and their families for their enduring contributions to this great state.”

Vikki Carr (Arts): She has captivated audiences worldwide for more than six decades, using her melodic voice and magnetic presence to bridge many cultures. Born Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona in El Paso, Vikki Carr signed her first recording contract in 1961 and released her Grammy-nominated hit single, “It Must Be Him.” A singer with remarkable technical skill, she gained effusive praise from stars such as Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald and Elvis Presley, and performed for presidents and royalty. Against resistance from her then male-dominated record label, Vikki Carr released her first Spanish album in the early 70s, paving the way for other artists to explore their Hispanic roots. Releasing over 60 best-selling albums, her popularity extended from the U.S. to Latin America as she championed the cause of unity through music and garnered three Grammy awards for her Spanish albums. In addition to a 2008 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Texas Medal of the Arts and other prestigious awards, Vikki Carr’s deep commitment to education and leadership development for Latino youth has gained her praise. Her philanthropy and advocacy efforts continue as she advocates for the family caregiver, bringing awareness to the much-needed resources and respite caregivers need. Still sharing her gift of music today, hers is a legacy of service, strength and perseverance.
Congratulations Vikki Carr, recipient of the Holy Cross Life Time Achievement Award at the Fifth Annual President's Blue & Gold Gala, J.W. Marriott Hill Country Resort, San Antonio.
