New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 13, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 2 A Cl Herald-Zeitung Cl Wednesday, December 13,1995 New Braunfels sixth grader meets baseball legend, hero By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer Twelve-year old Travis Dedek has done something that most kids his age would only dream of doing — he got to meet Nolan Ryan. Meeting the baseball legend and future Hall of Famer was a big treat for Dedek, a sixth grader at OakRun Middle School. Dedek got together with Ryan and his wife, Ruth at a private dinner during a Texas Rangers game in August in Arlington. Dedek and his parents, Donna and Henry, and sister Lesli, were able to visit with Ryan in the Rangers’ luxury box. Travis certainly treasured the moment since he is a big baseball fan and admirer of Ryan’s. “It was a wonderful experience, something I will never forget,” Travis said. “He was very nice. We talked about baseball and about the fastest pitch he ever threw.” Dedek got the chance to meet Ryan as part of an essay contest sponsored by Natural Resources Foundation of Texas of Midland, Texas. Contest winner Travis Dedek with Nolan and Ruth Ryan. Travis was one of four statewide winners of the Texas/Nolan Ryan Essay Contest chosen by the Natural Resources Foundation to meet Ryan. The subject of Travis’ essay was the importance of crude oil as a natural resource. The three page essay dealt with the process cycle of crude oil.

We talked about baseball and about the fastest pitch he ever threw.’ — Travis Dedek at Seele Elementary School. His fifth grade teacher turned in the class essays to the Natural Resources Foundation to be judged. Travis said he was pleasantly surprised when his essay was picked as one of state winners. “I was shocked because I did not think I would win,” Travis said. Donna said Travis has a knack for writing. “He basically has a talent for writing,” Donna said. “Travis really gets recognized for his stories he does in class, and he is a straight-A student.” When he is not writing award winning essays, he likes to participate in football, basketball and baseball. 10O percent givers Herald-Zeitunq photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Michael Meek, president of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, presents pledges and contributions from IOO percent of the chamber’s employees to Doug Miller, president, United Way of Comal County.
