Channel 16, Bryan Police Department to be honored Friday
The City of Bryan will be presented two awards at the Keep Brazos Beautiful gala on Friday evening at the Hilton.
The Communications Department’s Channel 16 will be honored with the “Fanfare Award.” The recognition is presented annually to a local television media personality or station whose efforts have significantly aided local environmental issues. Communications Specialist Allen Bruggman and Video Production Specialist Shawn Eyre recently launched a series of Be Green In Bryan television shows and produced a short environmental education movie titled Buzz’s Big Tour.
The communications staff also has highlighted environmental programs in its bi-weekly television series, Bryan Living and Learning. The series is produced by Bruggman and Craig Weaver.
The Police Department’s Neighborhood Enforcement Team (NET) will receive the Community Stewardship Award at Friday’s gala. The award is given annually to an individual or organization whose efforts have had the greatest impact on improving the local community and its environment. NET assisted in numerous community events to improve neighborhoods.
NET members were team captains for the Texas Trash Off and were responsible for new cleanup sites. NET forms strong community partnerships with the citizens of Bryan to enhance quality of life. This award is an example of commitment that NET has for the community. The NET team, led by Sgt. Demond Oliver, includes Officers Jim Berndt, Bill Cross, Will Holt and J.P. Ingram.
