Judging by the article, it appears the groom's maternal grandparents are longtime residents of Beeville, Texas, and now reside in San Antonio. Typically engagement and marriage announcements appearing in publications are paid for by the family. It seems the family opted to run this announcement; perhaps the Beeville community is and was important to the family because of their long ties there.

She’s baaaaaaaaack Board names Casas interim superintendent at special meeting

MATHIS – In a surprise move, the Mathis ISD Board of Trustees named Dr. Maria Rodriguez-Casas the interim superintendent while the district awaits the selection and arrival of a new top administrator – to replace Casas. The measure was approved by a split vote, 4-3, with trustees Ricky Cortez, John Galvan, Leroy Barrera and Mary Garza in favor. Angie Trejo, Rudy Hernandez and Melinda Barajas opposed the appointment. With all of the discussion in closed session, no details – including her daily salary – were available. The action came at a special board meeting, Monday night. Casas served as Mathis ISD superintendent from 2008, when she was named interim following Dr. Luis B. Gonzalez’s resignation, until a “voluntary separation” was announced after a Nov. 11 special meeting. Terms of that agreement cost the district’s taxpayers $159,255.26 and included a year’s salary ($130,9223.12), health and disability insurance policies, mileage for a year, 10 days paid vacation, a $5,000 contribution to her investment account and memberships in several professional organizations. The agreement also included a clause that allows Casas to be part of the 2015 graduation ceremonies, “... as a speaker, but not as an official administrator.” Under the terms of that agreement, her resignation becomes effective Jan. 30. On Feb. 2, she becomes the interim superintendent. The separation agreement came on the heels of two special meetings in September where the sole agenda item for each meeting vaguely referred to the superintendent’s employment and contract. Casas will serve as the interim until mid-April, according to the Texas Association of School Boards’ (TASB) time lines for hiring the new superintendent.
