The First Lady of Texas honors a Brazos Valley community for its preservation efforts.

Calvert Mayor Marcus Greaves and Cathy Lazarus, Chair of the Robertson County Historical Commission, received their Preserve America Community certificate from Texas First Lady Anita Perry in Austin Wednesday.

Preserve America is a national initiative that encourages community efforts of natural and cultural preservation.

Some of Calvert’s preservation projects include the Katy Hamman-Stricker Library, focusing on heritage tourism, and inclusion as a participating member of the Texas Brazos Trail, a regional heritage tourism program managed by the Texas Historical Commission.
