Mize Represents Lee County in Pecan Show
The 2012 East Texas Regional Pecan Show was held last week in Brenham, sponsored by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Representing Lee County at the Regional Show was Olivia Mize. Ms. Mize won Third Place-Schley. Nine other counties participated in Regional competition.
Participants must compete in a County Show in order to qualify for competition at Regionals. At the County level, Ms. Mize was Grand Champion-Commercial with a Schley variety, which also brought 1st Place-Schley.
Congratulations to Ms. Mize. She has received awards at County, Regional and State Pecan Shows for many years.
