Nominations for the 2024 Texas Chapter Member Awards

Each of the following awards is named after an individual who has exuded the characteristics all of us should admire and strive to emulate. They both left a legacy behind, setting the bar for us all to reach for in our own dedication to the interior design industry through the Texas Chapter of ASID.


Kathy Hammond was praised for her commitment to professionalism, keen sense of style, and eagerness to support the community. From serving with the Dallas Design Community to helping to organize METROCON Expo & Conference to volunteering for innumerable other roles, she consistently stepped up to the plate, always willing and eager to contribute where the need arose. This award is for an Industry Partner Representative who has continually and enthusiastically supported the Texas Chapter through their contribution of time, energy, materials, and resources.


Serving as ASID Texas Chapter president from 1993-1994, Robert Preston Henry actively promoted the profession he loved so much through a vibrant career spanning 60 years of dedication. He cultivated a love for interior design and was devoted to ASID. Practitioners nominated for one of these three awards radiate the same vibrant eagerness to support the chapter through volunteerism and commitment to peers, events and the chapter as a whole.

  1. On the Rise Legacy: This individual is still immersed in their interior design studies while being plugged in and eager to volunteer time and energy at the student level, encouraging peers and fellow members alike to further advance the interior design profession, the chapter, and ASID.
  2. Emerging Legacy: This practitioner has been supporting the chapter with time and energy with fresh consistency between two-five years of membership.
  3. Longevity Legacy: This individual has graced the ASID Texas Chapter with support, time and energy for six or more years of consecutive membership.
