She ll join other dignitaries like Roger Staubach, Clarice Tinsley and Emmit Smith at the Texas Hall of State at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 24 at Fair Park. The ceremony features performances by the United States Marine and Drum and Bugle Corps., introduction of state and local officials and then the fabulous ribbon cutting. Immediately following the close of the ceremony, the State Fair of Texas Starlight Parade will begin.

All of this kicks off the Ebby Halliday Century in the Making Pavilion, a celebration of the greatest moments in the first hundred years of football in North Texas. The highlight of the pavilion will be the unveiling and countdown of the top 100 football moments in this region s history, as voted by the public. The pavilion will be open from September 24 through October 17 at the Hall of State.
