■ San Antonio Area County Queen of 1995, Kriselda Gonzales, was crowned on March 20, 1995 at the Lila Cockrell Theatre. Out of approximately 2,000 young ladies from the immediate San Antonio area, Kriselda raised the most money, making her eligible to be crowned County Queen. She is grateful for the support of her entire family and die community who purchased her $1 tickets and her tacos. Prior to being crowned, Kriselda had won 2nd place in beauty judging, which earned her a 2nd place beauty cup. Her 1st place honor of being Miss S.A.A. County Queen earned her a trophy with special recognition by C.C.’s Pizza and a $50 savings bond to further her education. Kriselda says her dream is to be a traveling gymnast and a model one day. She wants to personally thank die entire public who made it possible for her and all the special, unique people that she met and made friends with in the midst of working for a goal. Mr. and Mrs. John Gonzales said they can’t say enough about the community because when they started to raise the money, the odds were against them because they were competing with the San Antonio area and there was a very slim chance. Thank you, New Braunfels, for putting the odds in Knselda’s favor.
