Humanities Texas Announces Winners of The First Humanities Texas Award
Date:1/24/2008

he history, heritage and cultural arts of the Rio Grande Valley.

For six decades, the BHA has supported the educational and cultural growth of South Texas and has catalyzed the redevelopment of historic downtown Brownsville by sponsoring various educational programs and walking tours.

In 2005, the BHA revised its mission statement and strategic plan, redoubling its efforts to provide accessible and compelling humanities programs for Rio Grande Valley residents and tourists alike. Attendance figures at BHA museums and programs have since quadrupled.

"They have managed to touch many lives with their programs," Charlie Cabler, Brownsville city manager, said. "Their efforts have sparked an interest in the revitalization of historic downtown Brownsville and increased heritage tourism."

Michael L. Gillette, executive director of Humanities Texas, regards the inaugural winners as exemplary practitioners of the public humanities.

"Both Clifton and Shirley Caldwell and the Brownsville Historical Association have made significant contributions to the appreciation and understanding of Texas history and culture," Gillette said. "We are honored to recognize their achievements, and we hope that their work will serve as models for others to emulate."

Humanities Texas will issue a call for nominations for the 2008 Humanities Texas Award in the spring.
