Texas Spirit Award

New this year is the Texas Spirit Award, Texas Spirit Award for Excellence, and Texas Spirit Award for Excellence with Distinction.  These three awards are similar to the Star Council and Lone Star Awards.  It is to recognize those councils who work so hard during the year but for various reasons, struggle to obtain their Membership and/or Insurance goals.
