The Texas Historical Commission (THC) has once again awarded the Aransas County Historical Commission (ACHC) its Distinguished Service Award (DSA). This award is for the 2018 year of service. It was presented at Aransas County commissioners’ regular meeting Monday, July 8.
The THC annually recognizes County Historical Commissions (CHC) that demonstrate exceptional service to preserve the heritage of Texas.
“The DSA honors CHCs that go above and beyond to protect and promote local historic and cultural resources. They are essential to our agency’s efforts to save the real places that tell the real stores of Texas,” said THC Executive Director Mark Wolfe.
This annual award affirms the ACHC is documenting ongoing, well-rounded programs of history and preservation-related projects that enrich Aransas County communities.
ACHC officers are Betty Stiles (chair), Mike Geer (vice chair), Barbara Gurtner (secretary), and Sandra Bridges (treasurer).
