MEDINA COUNTY RECEIVES DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD FROM TEXAS HISTORICAL COMMISSION

AUSTIN, Texas - The Texas Historical Commission (THC) recognized the Medina County Historical Commission (CHC) with a Distinguished Service Award (DSA) for the 2016 year of service.  The THC issues DSA’s each year to CHC’s that document ongoing, well rounded programs of history and preservation-related projects.  The award was presented during a meeting of the County Commissioners Court on June 26, 2017 to acknowledge the CHC’s dedicated service and stewardship of its architectural, archeological, and cultural landmarks.   

“County Historical Commissions act as grassroots leaders for preservation in communities across Texas,” said THC Executive Director Mark Wolfe.  “The Texas Historical Commission presents this Distinguished Service Award to the Medina County Historical Commission to honor its ongoing efforts to save the real places that tell the real stories of Texas.” 

Texas CHC’s provided more than 468,000 volunteer hours in 2016, which is an in-kind donation to the state valued at more than $11 million.  The THC assists more than 200 CHC’s through programs and services that preserve Texas’ heritage for the education, enjoyment, and economic benefit of present and future generations.  The THC’s advisory role to CHC’s is outlined in the Texas Local Government Code, the statute that enables County Commissioners Courts to establish CHC’s.  The Volunteer appointees, as directed by county officials, initiate and conduct programs that preserve the historic and cultural resources of Texas.
