Milestones for TDCAA staff

Introducing Sarah Edmonds

Sarah Jane Edmonds was born to ­Shannon and Meaghan Edmonds at 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 24 (during the Annual Criminal & Civil Law Update, in fact—though Shannon and Meaghan had stayed in Austin). She weighed 6 pounds, 2 ounces and was 19 inches long. She joins brother Thomas, 31⁄2, and sister Mary-Kate, almost 2. Meaghan notes that Sarah feels like she’s always been a part of the family. (Awwwww …) Congratulations on the new Edmonds!

Congratulations to Diane and Mark!

Diane Beckham, TDCAA Senior Staff Counsel, wed Mark Warren on ­October 2 in Austin. Mark is a training specialist for the Texas Association of Counties and works just a block north of the association headquarters. The wedding was a small family affair followed by an intimate, barbecue-filled reception. The highlights were toasts from Diane’s and Mark’s sons, Alex and Ash (respectively), that managed to be both hilarious and poignant. Congrats to you both on joining together two loving families! i
