For the 22nd time a local labor union is honoring those they believe are pillars in the community. HESP Union held their annual celebration Thursday morning where several people in Houston got the nod from the organization that represents support workers like custodians and cooks in the Houston Independent School District. The keynote speaker was Houston businessman Dallas Jones.
HESP President Wretha Thomas was on hand with lots of dignitaries like Representative Alma Allen and Congressman Al Green. I served as the master of ceremony for the sixth year. Congratulations to all the honorees!
