Mr. OLSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate high school
student Cassidy Nussman for being named to the 2014 Texas Girls Coaches
Association (TGCA) Class 6A all-state and academic all-state volleyball
teams. Nussman is a senior at Pearland High School in Pearland, Texas.
These prestigious awards recognize her hard work and exemplary
performance as a scholar-athlete.
Nussman earned a spot on the academic all-state team by maintaining a GPA of 3.9 or higher while competing on the court at an elite level throughout her high school career. She was also named an honorable mention selection on the Under Armour Girls High School All-America Team by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) and competed on the 2014 TGCA Blue All-Star team for Class 5A/6A as one of the division's top 12 college-bound players. She has committed to play volleyball for Northwestern University next year.
On behalf of the residents of the Twenty-Second Congressional District of Texas, congratulations again to Cassidy Nussman for being named to the 2014 Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA) Class 6A all- state and academic all-state volleyball teams. We look forward to her continued success both on and off the court.
