Bryan Mayor Mark Conlee presented the ninth annual Mayor’s Downtown Impact Awards during a volunteer reception Thursday evening at the Bryan Justice Center.

The Mayor’s Downtown Impact Award honors an extraordinary effort by an individual and/or organization to revitalize Historic Downtown.

The Maddens have operated their downtown restaurant for four years, and Andaya-Pulliam has served as executive director of the Children’s Museum for six years.

“We had a great pool of nominees to choose from and want to congratulate the winners on their commitment and contributions to downtown Bryan,” Conlee said.
