During summer months in Texas, there’s usually a lack of rain and drought-like conditions.

Supporters of Smith County Area Go Texan packed the inside of the Harvey Hall Convention Center in Tyler Saturday, July 21, for the fifth annual Smith County Area Go Texan Scholarship Gala fundraiser event. “We had a great event again this year,” said Gary Hettenbach, member of the Smith County Area Go Texan and board member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. “Naturally, we couldn’t do what we do without the efforts of our committee members, whom I deeply appreciate. My absolute thanks goes out to each and everyone that attended and helped to support our Smith County AGT goal of raising scholarship money for the youth of Smith County.”
