FORT STOCKTON — When I met Kelli Harrall Burns at the huge swimming pool in this small town, she was rehearsing a clog choir of 4 and 5 year olds who will be performing at the 86th annual water carnival in a few weeks.
I knew the dark-haired young woman grew up in this historic Trans-Pecos community, but little did I know that she was a former Miss Texas Teen, in addition to graduating from the University of Houston with a degree in law from Texas Tech and a cheerleader for the Houston Texans for three seasons (2011-2014). She and her husband Nick Burns, also a graduate of UH, have returned home — his house, that is — to raise their three children with family and friends.
