I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone, not only at the courthouse, but also in the community to say thank you for welcoming me and my family to the community. We have been in the community for a year now and it just feels like home.

My name is Vanessa Watkins and most of you know me as Vanessa Biggs. I am the daughter of the Kathy and the late Wayne Biggs and granddaughter the late Betty and Jim Biggs.

As some of you may know, I am not brand new to the community, but have been in and out of the community throughout the years including my third grade year at Panhandle Elementary as well as summer vacations and holidays.

I want you also to know that I am now working in the courthouse as Judge Dan Looten’s secretary and loving it. It has been an awesome opportunity for me, especially with my children being in school here. It has been awesome seeng my children become the fourth generation to grow up in Panhandle.

So, thank you so much for welcoming us to this town of Pride and Purpose and I look forward to serving you the best that I can. My husband is James Watkins who works at Bell Helicopter in the Security department and my two boys are Blayne and Issac Watkins.

Thanks Panhandle, so much for everything.

Vanessa Watkins
