The 7th Annual Sam Provence Award
The Sam Provence Award is bestowed annually to an individual who advocates for the rights of the disabled population and works diligently on their behalf, as did HRA’s founder, Sam Provence. The 2017 Sam Provence Award honoree will be announced at the HuRrAh! Fashion and Food Benefit on Saturday, May 20.
Sam Provence was the last diagnosed victim of polio in Tarrant County. He believed that people with a disabling condition could lead independent lives with some assistance. Sam helped pave the way for wheelchair access while attending the University of Texas at Arlington and helped initiate Arlington’s Handitran ride share program, providing door-to-door transportation services for the elderly and people with disabilities.
Previous Sam Provence Award winners include Lawrence Odom, Duy Le, Doug Garner, Bev Olson, Josh Schilling, and most recently, Cathy Whittington.
