Grant Ray Hartmann
Grant Hartmann is honored to represent the Floresville Peanut Festival Association as page to Queen-elect Corinne Morkovsky and the Court of Broadway Lights.
Grant is the son of Chad and Tina Hartmann. His little sister attends Sacred Heart Catholic School. He is the grandson of John and Ruth Cornali of La Vernia and Allen and Joan Hartmann of Floresville. Grant and his family are members of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in La Vernia.
Grant currently is a first- grader at Floresville South Elementary, where he participates in the Gifted and Talented program. When not in school, Grant enjoys playing soccer and basketball. Grant also helps his daddy feed cattle and has decided to start raising his own cattle. He also enjoys riding his horse, shooting his BB gun, playing on his computer, and swimming at his grandparents’ house.
Grant’s family has strong ties to peanut farming and the Peanut Festival Association. Grant’s great-grandfather, Papa Tackitt, and several of his uncles farmed peanuts. In addition, Grant’s great-grandmother, Mary Ella Tackitt, previously served as honorary grand marshal. Several of Grant’s cousins have also served on the Royal and Children’s Courts, including Queen Allison Marie Woelfler of the Court of Romantic Moments and King Joseph Woelfler of the Court of Texas Myths and Legends. This year Grant is privileged to serve on the Children’s Court with his cousin, Acolyte Landyn Latka, under the direction of his cousin, President Michelle Tackitt.
Grant and his family would like to express many thanks to his amazing seamstress, Nora Cadena, for making his costume. He also wishes to extend his sincere gratitude to Queen-elect Corinne Morkovsky and her family for giving him this opportunity. Grant has always considered Peanut Festival week to be a “holiday” and looks forward to Peanut Festival every year. He would like to invite everyone to come out and celebrate this “holiday” and the Peanut Festival traditions with him.
