2002: Beverley Brown

As a volunteer for several organizations serving the Greater Austin area, Beverley Brown eventually focused on the Optimist Club of North Austin. As the first woman member, she served as President of the North Austin Optimist Club for several terms. Through the NAO, she was involved with sports programs as head team representative, assistant coach, concessions manager, and officer for the baseball and football programs. Beverley’s basic philosophy has always been aimed at working for the betterment of our youth in the belief that even one little edge of learning about life given to those youngsters will have the potential of making them better citizens in tomorrow’s world. Beverley’s volunteering efforts programs at her church, local nursing homes, the Austin Family House, Austin State Hospital, Texas School for the Deaf, CASA, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and at times inviting underprivileged/troubled young girls to her home for a taste of close family life.
