There must have been a few people at Enron’s headquarters in Houston, Texas who received this certificate since they not only invented the future, but they also invented the past as demonstrated in their reported financial results. This certificate was given out to students as an achievement award and has the printed signature of George Bush when he was Governor of the State of Texas. The certificate has a colorful scene on the moon with 3 spacemen, a rocket and the lunar rover. The message along the top says “Invent the Future! Read!”
