Barbara Jordan Media Awards

Awards given by the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities


CTD / Team Everest '03 is honored to receive the 2002 "Special Contribution by an Organization" Award. In 1982, the Governor's Committee began its tradition of recognizing the communicators for accurately and progressively portraying people with disabilities. At the suggestion of many in the media, the awards were named for the late Barbara Jordan, one of Texas' most distinguished citizens and foremost spokespersons for the rights of all people.

Each year the Committee honors a select group of communicators in the fields of print, radio, photojournalism, television, advertising, public relations and other areas increasing public understanding of both the problems and potentials of individuals with disabilities. The 2002 Barbara Jordon awards ceremony will be held in San Antonio on April 24th.
