2010 Governor’s Employment Award Winners

2010 Governor’s Employment Award Winners

Very Important News!

Our panel of judges has selected the winners of the 2010 Governor’s
Employment Awards, and we have a wonderful list of recipients – all
well-deserving and wonderful role models for all businesses and communities.
Thank you so much to all who were nominated, and to all who nominated. Every
judge this year commented on the difficulty of selecting just one winner in
each category. That in itself is a testament to the positive efforts
throughout the state of Texas to make the workplace welcoming to ALL people.

Below is the list of this year’s winners. We hope that you will be able to
join us in honoring them, as well as many of our other nominees, at the
Employment Awards Ceremony Dinner on Friday, October 1, in Nacogdoches
(hosted by the Nacogdoches Mayor’s Committee on People with Disabilities).
We will send out event details soon, but if you want to go ahead and make
reservations, contact Kathy Strong at [email protected] or
936-569-7173. You can also visit our Employment Awards website for more
