From Staff Reports
Elizabeth Brown has recently been selected as the new Texas Veterans Parade CEO as the organization’s next meeting will take place 5 p.m. Thursday Aug. 19 at the First United Methodist Church, located at 320 N 15th Street.
“We have all witnessed Liz Brown’s work ethic, love of veterans, and organizational ability through the successful banquet at the Corsicana Country Club in June of 2019, the groundbreaking for the Gold Star Monument, the Medal of Honor trophy, and so much more,” said Lee W. McNutt.
Founded by Bill McNutt III in 2018, The Texas Veterans Parade follows their mission statement:
“To honor Texas Veterans from all wars and conflicts, to educate children/students about freedom, liberty and the sacrifices of Veterans.”
McNutt also shared his enthusiasm about retired Navy Officer, Joe Hill.
“We cannot say enough good things about Joe Hill,” McNutt said. “A retired Navy Officer who could have lived anywhere around Dallas, but chose Corsicana. A man dedicated to his church, his family, his fellow Veterans, and Navarro County, his new home. A man who can uncover and lead like-minded patriotic volunteers.”
Hill has followed through with several accomplishments during his time with the organization:
- Fiske Hanley speaking at Corsicana High School, May 2019
- Getting the family of Jose Antonio Navarro tied back to Corsicana
- Groundbreaking with Woody Williams of the Gold Star Monument, Nov. 2019
- Creation and presentation of the Medal of Honor Trophy that will go
annually to the winner of the Ennis-Corsicana football game
- A wonderful “Night with Woody Williams” at the Palace Theatre
- The creation of the Acree, Jester, Navarro Garcia, and Barton-Wright awards
- Honoring Hershel “Woody” Williams, Fiske Hanley, Joe Hill, Billy Richards,
Barbara Watkins, Liz Brown, Judy Dunavant, Judge Davenport and Kathy Meisetschleager with well deserved awards
McNutt also expresses appreciation to Judy Dunanant and Lynda Green for opening up the church for the meeting.
