The Community Foundation of West Texas will honor Mary Louise and Bill Kingsbery as the 2016 Heroes of the Year. Always low key, and never divulging their kind acts, Mary Louise and Bill Kingsbery changed the fabric and face of this community. Merrill Lynch (Thompson/Johnson Group), and Ramar Communications are the lead sponsors for this year’s Hero’s Luncheon. Numerous non-profit agencies and countless individuals will be celebrating this couple’s unique humility and remarkable generosity which have already created perpetual ripple effects to make this a better community.
The Community Foundation of West Texas gives more than $1 million annually in community grants for projects, scholarships and local nonprofit causes.
