Dr. Thomas F. Freeman was the inaugural recipient of Mayor Sylvester Turner's History Makers Awards–Living Legend. Freeman was feted on February 9 at the Houstonian Hotel at a luncheon hosted by Comcast. Dr. Bobbie Henderson, longtime College of Education professor and founder of TSU’s Center on the Family, was honored for her years of volunteer work with the United Way of Greater Houston’s Bright Beginnings program which focuses on early childhood education.

Dr. Freeman and Dr. Henderson were among eight other community leaders honored by Turner in celebration of Black History Month. Comcast donated $1,000 to the non-profit organization of their choice and is airing a 30-second public service announcement on the network throughout February. 

The event was designed to pay tribute to outstanding individuals committed to making a difference in Houston through volunteerism, mentorship, advocacy and civic engagement.
