Congressman John Carter (R-TX31) is proud to present long-time Belton-area resident Berneta Peeples with a Congressional Record, which was submitted Feb. 10, after she was named the newest honoree of the Yellow Rose of Texas Award.

Ms. Peeples has been a journalist since 1927, reporting on news from 13 presidential administrations and WWII to events and news in and around Belton. Peeples has covered news for generations and continues to report for the Belton Journal to this day. She is also an active member in the community, including working with the Bell County Historical Commission and has been known to be the “unofficial historian of Belton.”

Please join Congressman Carter in celebrating Ms. Peeples contributions to journalism and the Belton Community.
