Mr. OLSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Regina Crafter
of Missouri City, Texas for being awarded the Ms. Texas America 2015
title by the Ms. America Pageant. Regina is a health teacher at Quail
Valley Middle School in Missouri City, Texas. This award recognizes her
exceptional contributions to her community as an educator, youth mentor
and champion of health initiatives.
Regina has led several successful fundraising drives for the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the American Diabetes Association (ADA). She is also a breast cancer survivor who has been an outspoken awareness ambassador for the disease. She is committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle for her students. Regina is the Health Club sponsor and the ADA coordinator at Quail Valley Middle School. She has helped her students raise more than $10,000 for ADA, the largest donation among secondary schools in Texas. She goes on to compete in the 2015 Ms. America Pageant finals.
I commend Regina Crafter for the outstanding difference she has made in her community as a role model and leader. On behalf of the residents of the Twenty-Second Congressional District of Texas, congratulations again to Regina for being selected to represent our state as Ms. Texas America 2015. We wish her well as she competes on the national stage. I know she will make Texas proud.
