CITIZEN OF THE YEAR The historic Houston Heights : A Living Neighborhood




The protected Historic Heights is a vibrant living neighborhood
of legacy architecture, historic homes, parks, mature trees, verdant native gardens,
compatible businesses, and most importantly wonderful neighbors.

I am humbled to have been honored as Citizen of the Year
by the Houston Heights Association

Citizen of the Year
The Citizen of the Year award is given annually to an individual who has supported the Associa tion in a manner to distinguish it beyond that of our average member and volunteer, which makes Angela DeWree an obvious choice to receive the recognition.
Over the years, Angela has designed the posters and other printed material for many of
the home tours and candlelight dinners, and she co-chaired the home tour in 2005. She also designed the candlelight dinner venues many years, including the event at the iconic Kaplan’s-Ben Hur just before it yielded to the wrecking ball.

Angela is also a community activist for our neighborhood and
a tireless advocate for natural habitats and wildlife throughout the City and State. She founded and still chairs the Association’s Urban Forestry Committee and
holds at least two events during the year to bring awareness to our very treasured old-growth treescape, a characteristic that makes the Houston Heights unique. She works closely with City, County and State urban foresters and contributing businesses to protect trees and green space throughout the neighborhood.
She is a past Board Member and, for the past several years, she has organized the monthly general meeting meetings. Due in part to her dynamic programming and creative marketing, she has helped the general meetings go from a dozen or so attendees to full houses.
Congratulations to Angela DeWree, who lives by the philosophy to have fun every day!
