2013 Light of Hope Award Recipients

Terri Jaggers Speaks about the Texas Foster Family Association from Tree Top Entertainment on Vimeo.

Corporate Legacy Award - Spirit of Texas Bank

Spirit of Texas Bank Dean Bass

When approached as to what company/organization in the private sector has been the most influential in providing the support needed to make Montgomery County’s CPS initiatives the most successful in Texas, I reported, without a doubt, “Spirit of Texas Bank!”  With each request, this Texas grown institution has maintained the answer “YES”.  Their support has allowed leaders in our State’s plight to improve the lives of foster families to pursue and accomplish great vision.  As Spirit of Texas Bank grows, so has their commitment to Texas’ communities and children.


Community Legacy Award - Houston Texan, Andre Johnson


Andre Johnson was selected because of his generous contribution and welcome of many of our community’s foster children to participate in a Christmas shopping spree of nearly $20,000 last year.  It was not just a transactional act of Christmas cheer, but an experience that impacted the self-esteem, personalities, and view of community and strangers that brought hope and transformation to these youth’s lives.


Goverment Legacy Award - Montgomery County Judge, Alan B. Sadler

Judge Alan B Sadler

Judge Sadler (an elected official) was selected because of his personal and professional commitment in support of the creation of the community collaboration known as the Montgomery County CPS Community Advisory Board.  Montgomery County, under his leadership has produced the most successful collaboration of the public and private sector for the sake of Texas’ foster children in the state of Texas.
