According to Texas State History Museum Foundation Trustee Lisa Cooley,
“On Wednesday, March 2, of next year, the Texas State History Museum Foundation will honor Texas legends James Dick and Dallasite Lyda Hill with the History-Making Texan Award. The award will be presented at the Foundation’s 18th Annual Texas Independence Day Dinner at the Bullock Museum in Austin. Jan Felts Bullock of Austin is the honorary chair.
“The dinner celebrates the state’s rich cultural heritage and generates support for the Bullock Museum, the nation’s premier institution on Texas history. Approximately 500 business, political and community leaders from around the state will attend the black-tie
“Through the generosity of event sponsors, the evening raises support for foundation’s efforts to fund the many educational programs and special projects of the Bullock Museum, including School Tours and Distance Learning that benefit over 100,000 students annually.
“My wish, along with Dallas residents who serve on the Texas State History Museum Foundation Board of Trustees Bruce Blakemore, Diane Bumpas, Louise Griffeth, Lynn McBee, Michal Powell and Debbie Raynor, is that you will consider supporting this unique educational gem that celebrates Texas’ rich heritage.
