Hatton W. Sumners Foundation 70th Anniversary Celebration

At the invitation of the State Bar of Texas, our YSCA Executive Director, Debbie Keen, attended an event honoring the Hatton W. Sumners Foundation’s 70 years of service.  The HWS Foundation has partnered with the State Bar of Texas’s Law-Related Education (LRE) division for many years to support the production of high quality civics education resources.  The HWS Foundation and LRE are both fellow nonprofit organizations (501c3) and provide these educational resources to teachers across Texas, without charge.  Debbie has contributed to and consulted on many LRE projects over the years and was awarded the Texas Lawyers Auxiliary Teach of the Year Award in 2015 for her commitment to promoting civics education.
