ACHC Wins Award


For the second year in a row, the Atascosa County Historical Commission was awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the Texas Historical Commission. The distinction was given to 82 of Texas's 254 counties. The awards are presented to acknowledge the dedication of county historical commissions that have cultivated a strong relationship with their county commissioners court and the THC. The Atascosa CHC is involved in many community projects, and reported over 5,000 volunteer hours in 2008. The award was presented at a special reception during the annual preservation conference in Lakeway, near Austin.
