Distinquished Service Award

The Atascosa County Historical Commission has been chosen to receive the DSA for the fourth year in a row by the Texas Historical Commission. The group will be recognized in County Commissioners Court on April 25, a certificate has been sent by THC and will be presented to Chairman Norman Porter, Sr. by County Judge Diana Bautista.

Seventy-one of the 254 Texas counties received the award for 2011. This year the Atascosa CHC partnered with TxDOT and THC to complete a cemetery survey, identifying 108 cemeteries in the area so that they could be put on an updated map. This tool will be used by libraries, funeral homes, county offices and historians. New historical marker subjects were researched and approved, as well.
