Proud Of East Texas:Maurya Beth Pinion

Maurya Beth Pinion teaches dyslexic children at Vivian Fowler Elementary School in Mt. Pleasant.  Although she finds teaching very gratifying, art has always been Pinion's first love.

Recently, Pinion's graphic drawing of "The Roper" was chosen to be featured at the National Cattlemen's Association Convention at Nashville's Gaylord Opryland Resort. Delegates lined up around the block to get her autograph on their prints.

Pinion's success in Nashville has led to requests from the San Antonio Livestock Show, The National Quarter Horse Association, and the professional Bull Riders Association for art work.
