Goober Gazette: Princess-elect Alyssa Farias
Alyssa Jane Farias
Alyssa Jane Farias is extremely grateful and excited to be chosen as First Runner-up Princess-elect of Enigmatic Romance for the 69th annual Peanut Festival Court of Broadway Lights.
Alyssa is the 17-year-old daughter of Frank and Christina Farias. She is sister to Ariel and Josiah Farias. She is the granddaughter of Mary and Francisco Farias Sr. of Floresville and Juanita Garcia of Floresville and the late Juan Garcia.
Alyssa, a senior at Floresville High School, is a member of the Mighty Tiger Band, where she has served as sophomore representative and band secretary, and currently holds the position of band president. This past year Alyssa was named to the All-State Band. She has been a junior class officer and is a member of both Student Council and the National Honor Society.
Alyssa’s desire to represent the peanut harvest history stems from her late grandfather, Juan Garcia, who worked alongside the many peanut-farming families of Floresville. She is very proud of her family’s history and believes that her grandfather is smiling down on her.
Alyssa would like to thank, first and foremost, her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing her with this opportunity. She sends her utmost gratitude to Joey Garza for his acceptance in escorting her as prince-elect. Alyssa would also like to thank her amazing family for their love, support, and dedication they have given throughout her life. A special thank you goes to her extremely talented seamstress, Nora Cadena, for the hard work and amazing artistry she has put into making Alyssa’s dress. Alyssa would also like to thank the Floresville Peanut Festival Association for this incredible opportunity to represent the community as a princess for the Court of Broadway Lights.
