For more than a decade now, the Missouri City Juneteenth Celebration Foundation (MCJCF) has endeavored to bring positive attention to African-Americans in the Missouri City/Fort Bend area, while celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation.
One facet of our celebration is the Community Service Awards Gala. This event was initiated and established in 2006 to bring recognition to area community leaders.
Hosted by State Representative Ron Reynolds who serves as Honorary Chair for the Missouri City Juneteenth Celebration Foundation Community Service Awards Gala, we are most proud to announce this year's Keynote Speaker as Dr. Ruth J. Simmons, President of Prairie View A&M University.
This year's Community Service Honorees are District Attorney Brian M. Middleton, Judge Teana Watson and Judge Toni Wallace.These leaders are citizens who exemplify conviction, purpose and enthusiasm as responsible citizens of this community.
