In these parts the importance of events can’t be judged by the number of guests. Such was the case on the afternoon of Friday, January 12, at Annette Simmons‘ and Jerry Fronterhouse‘s estate. The crowd was made up of less than 25, but what a heady group it was — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, State Sen. Don Huffines, State Rep. Morgan Meyer, Texas Tech University System Chancellor Emeritus Kent Hance and the blended family and friends of the late Harold Simmons.
The occasion was the champagne toast for the designation of the Harold C. Simmons Memorial Highway. As the signage was being put into place along Preston Road extending from Northwest Highway to Royal Lane, accolades and memories were shared in the home where Harold had lived for decades.
