KINGSVILLE (Kiii News) -

A meaningful ceremony was held in Kleberg County Thursday morning as the Texas Secretary of State delivered a special proclamation.

"Know ye that this official recognition is presented to the citizens of Kleberg County as it celebrates its hundredth anniversary," Secretary of State John Steen announced.

Elected officials and members of the Centennial Committee looked on as the secretary read the proclamation from the governor of Texas. Kleberg County Judge Juan Escobar said it meant a lot.

"There's a lot of counties that started way back then, and they've been chopped up or cut off and their lines have changed," Escobar said. "So it's an honor to have achieved that milestone."

The actual anniversary occurred in August, but Escobar said everyone was happy that the secretary and his entire staff were there for the ceremony.
