On the evening of Thursday, August 13, 2020, during the ASID Texas Chapter Celebrating Design Texas virtual awards event, the following members were recognized for their service to the chapter by winning 2020 Texas Chapter Member Awards:
The Kathy Hammond Industry Partner Award
- Peggy Zettner with ASID Industry Partner Interior Trade Cartel (San Antonio)
The Robert Preston Henry Practitioner Awards
- On the Rise Award: the entire Texas Tech University ASID Student Chapter (Lubbock)
- Emerging Award: Veronica Sanders, Allied ASID (Forney)
- Longevity Award: Jane Garland Lucas, FASID (Austin)
Each of the Texas Chapter Member 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:
THE KATHY HAMMOND INDUSTRY PARTNER AWARD
Kathy Hammond was praised for her commitment to professionalism, keen sense of style, and eagerness to support the community. 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.
THE ROBERT PRESTON HENRY PRACTITIONER AWARD
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.
