A 3-year-old Noble resident has been selected to receive tickets to animal expert Jack Hanna’s appearance at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Alex Lane was chosen by the Students Helping Others Unite Together (SHOUT) program at Noble High School.

Lane and her family will also be attending a VIP meet and greet session with Hanna after the show, and they will be treated to a special dinner at Lucille’s Roadhouse Restaurant.

In addition, Lane will receive an animal-themed dream trip, therapeutic horse riding lessons and passes to the Oklahoma City Zoo, according to a news release.

More efforts on her behalf by the SHOUT group include working with the J.D. McCarty Center for children with developmental disabilities in Norman to provide cerebral palsy equipment such as a wheelchair, lifts and sidewalk ramps.

Alex is a pre-kindergarten student along with her twin sister Penny, and her older sister, Abby, is in kindergarten. Her father, Matt, is a Noble High School teacher and her mother, Stephanie, is a stay-at-home mom.
