The Santa Rita No. 1 presentation by Cynthia Jordan

Speaker or PresenterThe story of the Santa Rita No. 1 is a lesson on dreams coming true because of tenacity and not giving up. The Permian Basin discovery marked the beginning of the West Texas oil boom. Because the well was on univerisity land, both UT and A and M have financially benefitted from royalties sine 1923. Cynthia Jordan visits children throughout the state of Texas, telling the Santa Rita story with music and song. For you country music lovers, Cindy also wrote the 1983 country music song, Jose Cuervo (you are a friend of mine).
