The Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse(FBRC) and community supporters gathered to celebrate The Honorable Roy Cordes, Jr. Roy received (actually earned) the Helen Cordes Award in recognition of his continual and significant contributions to the citizens of Fort Bend County. Not only did we have the chance to recognize Roy for all of his selfless contributions, but the award dinner also serves as FBRC’s fund raiser. We at FBRC wish to thank all our sponsors, in particular Consolidated Home Health and Sprint Waste Services, for their contributions which allows FBRC to continue youth and adult services to the Fort Bend County community. Together we all make Fort Bend County a stronger community of healthy, happy and hopeful families and neighbors.
This is a video highlighting the Leadership High School program. This week-long program brings the Fort Bend County Community together to encourage the students of LCISD to become future county leaders. The leadership program includes 60 young people and will enhances their lives through exposure to and education about their broader community.
The Cordes Award Dinner honors Helen Cordes for her generous community spirit and many community achievements. Helen served on the Fort Bend Regional Council’s Board of Directors from 1991-1997 and was President from 1992-1995. During that time and long afterward, she served FBRC with such a sincere passion for the mission that she has inspired all who have shared the privilege of working with her.
