Letter to the editor: Regional manager of admissions for Texas on Hurricane Harvey

Posted on Aug 29 2017 - 6:41pm by Rebecca Adler
I’m a native Houstonian and this is surreal. Words can’t fully describe what is happening, but you are seeing much of it unfold before you on the news and social media.

The saying, ‘everything is bigger in Texas’ is true. Harvey is bigger, our hurt is bigger, our hearts are bigger and our resilience is bigger. Texas is unified.

Ole Miss alumni, students, families and prospective students are deeply impacted. They are working around the clock at Texas Children’s Hospital, reporting the news on KHOU- Channel 11, rescuing neighbors in boats and volunteering in shelters.

Politically charged posts have disappeared from Facebook, and social media is being used to facilitate rescues and resources.

Beyond my kin, I am part of two amazing families. I’m lucky to be an Ole Miss Rebel from Texas.

Rebecca Adler is the regional manager of admissions for Texas and is from Houston.
