Rep. Party District 2 honors Collins

Every two years the Republican Party of Texas recognizes an outstanding volunteer from each of the 31 Texas senatorial districts.  Criterion for the award is that the individual advance the conservative values held by the Republican Party.  The recipient of the award for senate district 2, which includes Van Zandt County, was Dr. Dwayne Collins of Edom. 

The award was presented to the recipients Sept. 22 in Austin.  The honorees were treated to an entire day’s activities which included a private tour of the Capital building as well as the Governor’s Mansion.  At breakfast and lunch, they met with many of the state officials who thanked them for their tireless work on behalf of the Republican Party.  The day culminated in a huge gala where the award was presented to each person by Lt. Governor Dan Patrick.
