Frank M. Adams Media Award Winners - Texas Council of Community Centers
The Frank M. Adams Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service is presented annually to volunteers in the Texas Councils Community Centers system in recognition of services which represent a long term commitment, which is exceptional and far reaching in scope, diversified in effort, and over and above that recognized at the local level.
As a founding member of the Texas Council of Community Centers and member of the Board of Trustees of the Southeast Texas MHMR Center (now named Spindletop MHMR Services), the late Frank M. Adams exemplified service that enhanced and enriched the quality of life for persons with mental disabilities in Texas. He distinguished himself as an individual who loved, cared and showed compassion for persons with mental illness, mental retardation and substance addiction.
The award was established (1990) by the Administrators of Volunteer Services Consortium (AVSC) of the Texas Council of Community Centers with the support of the Board of Directors of the Texas Council of Community Centers. In 1994 the Public Information Officers Consortium joined the AVSC and Texas Council in sponsoring these awards and specifically the media award. In 1996, both consortia merged to become the Marketing and Public Relations Consortium.
