On October 10, Chris Phillips attended the presentation of the 2015 Texas Historical Commission (THC) Governor’s Award for Historic Preservation to the Texas Land Title Association (TLTA). The award recognizes the work the TLTA has done with the agency’s award-winning Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program since 2005.
This prestigious award, given to TLTA during a special ceremony conducted by Governor Greg Abbott, acknowledges TLTA and its members’ support for the preservation and conservation of Texas’ historic courthouses. As guardians of property records, Texas courthouses have long been associated with our industry and remain uniquely connected to our work.
“County courthouses are the cornerstones of our communities, and the Texas Land Title Association is proud to be part of ensuring they are preserved and maintained so generations of Texans can use and enjoy them,” said Leslie Midgley, TLTA Executive Vice President and CEO. “The Texas Historical Commission is a vital agency, and as we enter the eleventh year of our partnership with them, we are honored to receive this prestigious award.”
James H. Dudley, IV, TLTA President says, “I want to thank the Texas Historical Commission for the important work they’ve done in revitalizing our treasured Texas courthouses. Their passion and dedication to this project is a true gift to the citizens of our state. TLTA is grateful for the continued opportunity to partner with them to provide Texas counties with the tools they need to be good stewards of these beautiful buildings, which are the heart and soul of our communities. We’re proud and honored to be part of this great Texas history project.”
