She hopes to one day open up her own private practice right here in the town of Floresville.
Alexa extends her utmost gratitude to Garrett Pollok for his acceptance in escorting her as King Reboog-elect LXVII. And a special thank you to her seamstress, Lorraine Young, for all her hard work, heart, and dedication that she has put into making Alexa’s gown absolutely beautiful. She would also like to give a big thank you to Peanut Festival Association President Audrey Clements for all her time and effort.
Alexa would also like to thank her family for their love, support, and their unwavering dedication. And a special thanks to a very special woman that has helped her keep everything organized, her loving mother, for all the time she has spent planning events, keeping track of the dates, and making it possible for them to have a successful year.
Being queen-elect of the 67th annual Peanut Festival is a unique opportunity and a blessing that Alexa will forever cherish. She is looking forward to fulfilling her responsibilities as queen, and representing the city along with her court and children’s court throughout the state of Texas.
Alexa extends an invitation to the public to join in this year’s annual Peanut Festival activities.
