Friend of Lee County History Award to be Presented to the Texas Wendish Heritage Society
For the past several years, Lee County Historical Commission recognized citizens of our county by presenting an annual Teacher of Lee County History Award to teachers from one of our county schools.
In 2008, the teacher award was discontinued and replaced by Friend of Lee County History Award to be presented annually to an organization, group, business or individual in recognition of efforts to preserve Lee County history. The Historical Commission is open for nominations by any Lee County citizen.
In 2008 the "Friend" award was presented to Carolyn Marble in recognition of her long time devotion to the preservation of the local history through the years. Because she has been such a pivotal person in all things "historical", the Commission chose to name the annual award in her honor.
The second annual Carolyn Calvin Marble - Friend of Lee County History Award will be presented to the Texas Wendish Heritage Society in recognition of their work in preserving their heritage through the Museum at Serbin. The presentation will be made at the Twenty-First Annual Wendish Fest on Sunday, September 27.
