HER Awards 2013

HER Awards for 2013 recognize and honor seven excellent role models

Over 200 friends and fans of the Nominate HER Awards Program and the 2013 award recipients filled the ballroom of La Colombe d’Or Mansion on May 22 to be part of the seventh annual celebration luncheon.

The event, sponsored each year by Houston Woman Magazine to honor excellent role models, was a beautiful occasion. The French-inspired, wood-paneled walls and glittering crystal chandeliers of the mansion’s Le Salon set an elegant tone. Chairs and round tables were covered in white linens and platinum-threaded sheers. The centerpieces — created by Flowers by Nino — featured cream-colored roses with pink edges. The programs too, designed and printed by Minuteman Press Post Oak, kept the color-theme going. All were perfect touches for a luncheon planned to celebrate seven special women. 

Guests were welcomed by Beverly Denver, publisher of Houston Woman Magazine. Afterward, Sister Jane Meyer, head of St. Agnes School, gave the invocation.

The awards were presented in two parts — before and after the main course was served, when each honoree was introduced by the person who nominated her. In their presentations, the nominators explained why they felt the HER Award recipients were so deserving of special recognition. As in years past, the presentations were heart-felt and, at times, emotional. Some of the stories told brought tears to the eyes of those in attendance.



The 2013 honorees, and the awards they received include Kim Watson, Broad Shoulders Award; Karen Leving-ston Franklin, Community Angel Award; Angelique Bartholomew, Evolving Eve Award; Elizabeth Asher, Gutsy Gal Award; Mary C. Jones, Maximum Mom Award; Ludmila Golovine, Savvy Sister Award; and Dr. Judy Levison, Wise Woman Award.

As in years past, each of the seven HER Awards were sponsored by local groups and/or businesses. The 2013 award sponsors include Class XXXI of the American Leadership Forum, Becky Dunn of Metromarketing Services, Inc., Evalyn Shea of Shea Writing and Training Solutions, Fran Padgett of The Weathervane Foundation, Sheri Parrack of Texas Motor Transportation Consultants, Jody Numata of Minuteman Press Post Oak and Vickie Milazzo of the Vickie Milazzo Institute.
