The Bayou Preservation Association’s ninth annual Terry Hershey Bayou Stewardship Awards Luncheon was held at the Junior League of Houston and chaired by board member Merrie Talley. About 240 bayou supporters gathered to honor three individuals for their commitment to the conservation, preservation, restoration or advocacy of Houston’s waterways. This year’s awardees included Mayor Sylvester Turner; Kevin Shanley, president of SWA Group and former association chairman, and Jackie Young, founder of Texas Health and Environment Alliance. The Hon. Ed Emmett, who was unable to attend, received a special recognition award, and guests were encouraged to get their photos taken with his life-size cut-out holding a paddle next to a bayou. Nearly $70,000 was raised. KTRK-Channel 13 news anchor Melanie Lawson served as emcee.
