What is your current occupation (or where do you attend school), and
what does that involve?
"I am the current vice president for membership with the Seguin High
School Band Boosters. I’m also employed at American Bank of Texas,
and have been there for the past 26 years. "
What do you do off the clock “Just for fun?”
"Traveling with the Seguin High School Band has become a big part of
our family’s life. Both of our children are in percussion at Seguin
High School, and it is very demanding of our extra time but we
highly enjoy it. Music has always been a big part of our life, as my
husband Tony is a drummer himself and still plays occasionally. He
also has a DJ service that he enjoys running. Outside of music, we
enjoy time on the water with our boat, enjoy going to the movies, and
hope we can find time this season to squeeze in the Texas Renaissance
Festival in Plantersville Texas."
What city and state were you born in?
"Seguin, Texas….Born and raised. Been here all my life. Really have
no reason to leave since all of my family is here and it’s a great
community to be a part of, and besides….a river runs through it!"
Who are the members of your immediate family?
"My loving husband, Tony Deharde Jr., and our twins, Lena Deharde and
Christian Deharde."
What is the biggest challenge you’ve ever faced?
"The day our twins were born. They were born prematurely at 7
months, at four pounds each. What was to be a natural birth turned into an
emergency C-Section. Both babies were almost lost. I owe their
lives to the wonderful doctors and nurses at the Methodist Hospital
in San Antonio Texas, as well as, our many prayers to God, and to our
many prayers we had said at the Church of the Little Flower when we
went and prayed upon the relics of St. Therese."
What is your favorite TV show and movie?
"I have a few….TV shows: Big Bang Theory, Friends, The Voice - I
have a few….Favorite Movie: Pride and Prejudice, Good Will Hunting,
In Love and War, Mr. Holland’s Opus"
What type of music do you enjoy (favorite band, song, etc…)?
"DC TALK, NewsBoys, TobyMac, RUSH, Kevin Fowler, Cody Johnson, and
pretty much anything from the 80’s"
What is your favorite Seguin business and restaurant?
"Gift & Gourmet and Kirby’s Korner. I can walk into either one (and)come
out completely satisfied!"
What is something folks may not really know about you?
"I’m quiet and shy…and hate it when I have to have my picture taken."
If you could assemble a dinner party with any five guests (living or
dead) -excluding immediate living family members - who would they be?
"My dad Nolan Reinhard, (God rest his soul), my late father-in-law,
Tony Deharde Sr. (because I never got the chance to meet him, since
he had passed before I came along in the family.) Mother Teresa, Jane
Austen, Princess Diana."
What are your roles in the community?
"Continue to support the Seguin Matador Band for the benefit of the
students in the best way I can. "
What are this proudest moments in your personal life or in your career?
"The day my husband and I became parents has to be the proudest
moment of my life."
What do you believe are the strengths of this community?
"We may not see it yet, but our school system is coming together and
growing together. We may have had some rough starts on things, but I
feel there is more good to come. Our new school is coming along
nicely, and I’m excited about what that has to offer to the children
of our community. Our children are our future, and that has got to
stay at the focal point."
What do you find as the most interesting thing about Seguin?
"Our new high school. It may be a mess right now, but wow, it’s
going to be nice."
What are your future plans?
"To stay in Seguin, and get my kids off to college, but I’m not at
all rushing things."
What message do you have for the community?
"The Seguin Band Boosters will be hosting our annual band Barbeque on
Thursday November 10th. Come on out and join us. See any one of the
band students or Booster members to purchase meal tickets. We will
have a lot of raffle prizes and auction items to bid on the night of
the event. All funds raised for the event, are for the benefit of
our band students. We hope to gain enough funds to help in a major
purchase for new needed instruments for the Seguin High School band
program. Thank you Seguin for your continued support. Hope to see
you all at the barbeque!"
