|At Navarro College|
|With Dr. Tim Kevil|
After gaining approval from his administration, Tim called with an invitation for me to provide a program about Sam Houston at a signing event hosted by the library. Tim informed me that there had never been an event of this kind at Navarro, and for a date we agreed upon Tuesday evening, March 8, 2016.
|With Dr. Shellie O'Neal|
On that date I arrived at Navarro at mid-afternoon, setting up my book table and arranging my program props. I had time to take Shellie to an early dinner before changing to a suit and returning to campus. The audience was impressive: deans and other administrators, key faculty members, board members, and a large number of interested citizens, including Navarro County Judge H.M. Davenport (whose wife, Carole, a college staff member, assisted me in setting up during the afternoon). The audience was quite receptive to my program about Sam Houston, and while refreshments were being served, I had the pleasure of inscribing a large number of books on the campus where I had enrolled as freshman 46 years earlier. Tim Kevil was highly satisfied with the event – I was ecstatic!
