Here are the honorees:
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price – Legend Award
“I do think that the art of compromise and of listening and being respectful of each other has been lost - the last few years particularly,” she said in a recent FWBP interview. “It’s been going that way for a long time. It’s a tough spot but you just have to be respectful.”
Louella Baker Martin – Legacy Award
“Get to know people you meet and keep in contact, “being there” for others, listen to their ideas, follow-up, have a sense of humor,” she said.
Pat Harrison Dedicated Service Award
“My career at BRIT has focused on nature education, specifically plants and our natural environment. Plants have always been a passion, and I’ve come to realize the power of nature to improve lives,” she said.
