WHEREAS, The Senate of the State of Texas is pleased to
  join the citizens of Bryan and College Station in celebrating
  February 6, 2013, as Bryan-College Station Day at the State
  Capitol; and
         WHEREAS, These neighboring cities share the distinction
  of being home to Texas A&M University, established just south
  of Bryan in 1876 as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of
  Texas; located at the postal railway stop called College
  Station, the future university town originated as a planned
  community for professors; and
         WHEREAS, The City of Bryan was established in 1859 and
  named after William Joel Bryan, the nephew of Texas pioneer
  Stephen F. Austin; Bryan incorporated in 1871 and grew into a
  vibrant and diverse city of commerce; and
         WHEREAS, College Station burgeoned along with the
  university, experiencing major growth in the 1960s, when the
  school opened its doors to women and adopted the name Texas A&M
  University; today, Texas A&M is one of the largest public
  universities in the nation; and
         WHEREAS, This thriving area is also home to the George Bush
  Presidential Library and Museum; the library chronicles the
  administration of George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president
  of the United States, and houses more than 40,000 artifacts and
  one million audiovisual records; since its opening in 1997, the
  presidential library has hosted more than 690,000 visitors; and
         WHEREAS, Set amid rich, rolling farmlands, the two
  venerable cities of Bryan and College Station share a steadfast
  commitment to higher education, cultural enrichment, and
  enduring traditions; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 83rd
  Legislature, hereby join the proud area citizens in celebrating
  Bryan-College Station Day at the State Capitol on February 6,
  2013; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution be prepared as an
  expression of esteem from the Texas Senate.
        President of the Senate
        I hereby certify that the
    above Resolution was adopted by
    the Senate on January 30, 2013.
