Congratulations! HAULYP was named Southern Region Chapter of the Year at the 2012 National Urban League Convention!
Many of you, including the over 40 HAULYP members who attended the national conference, were already aware of this honor that was bestowed on our chapter for our members’ hard work and dedication. However, I wanted to formally congratulate the chapter as a whole. Thank you for all that you do!
During this year’s conference the Houston Area Urban League was well represented. In addition to the award HAULYP received, Michele Scurry, HAULYP Secretary, was recognized as the Southern Region Outstanding Member of the Year! Additionally, the HAUL N.U.L.I.T.E.S. chapter was honored with the N.U.L.I.T.E.S. Affiliate of the Year, along with the HAUL affiliate receiving the “I Am Empower Champion Award.” Lastly, HAUL staff member Venita Gatson received the “Eddie L. Moore Caring Adult of the Year Award,” while the HAUL Guild was recognized for Fund Raising (2nd place award) and Community Service (3rd place award).
While we do not do the work that we do for recognition, these honors show that the Urban League Movement in Houston, TX is strong and that our members remain committed to making Houston a better place for all. Congratulations!
Yours in the Movement,
Elijah J. Williams
