Stephen Morgan Recognized as a “Big Believer of the Year” by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston
Brothers Big Sisters Greater Houston (BBBS) held their 8th Annual Big Picture Luncheon at Minute Maid Park’s Union Station. With over 350 guests in attendance, three local leaders were awarded the “Big Believer of the Year Award”.
Stephen Morgan, TransTex Treating’s Senior Vice President, has been involved with BBBS for four years and became a Big Brother to Jonathan in October of 2016. Stephen has been a strong advocate for BBBS and dedicates his time to not only mentoring but also to hosting fundraising and recruiting efforts. This past spring, Stephen, and the TransTex Treating / Eureka Midstream teams joined together to donate a bulk of lightly used computer equipment to ‘littles’ in need. In addition, Young Professionals in Energy (YPE), a local non-profit chaired by Stephen, hosts annual back-to-school supplies drive each August, which has now raised thousands of dollars and school supply donations for local youth.
Other recipients this year included Dana Darden with Houston Independent School District and Jake Donaldson of Method Architecture.
These philanthropic leaders in the Houston community were selected out of a pool of nominations for their demonstrated passion towards helping others, a strong belief in the power of mentoring and deep commitment to civic engagement. Through their efforts, these Big Believers have exemplified and heightened the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters and have helped to serve more children in the Greater Houston community with positive, caring mentors.
