Canyon, Texas - Over two dozen state employees were recognized at the 17th annual Texans Caring For Texans ceremony Tuesday morning on the campus of West Texas A&M University.

The award acknowledges those who show dedication and go above and beyond their call of duty. Executive Director of TxDOT, Phil Wilson, was this year's keynote speaker.

The Texans Caring For Texans project was started in 1996 by former state representative David Swinford. Since then, the event has recognized those who truly work hard for Texas.

State representatives John Smithee, Walter "Four" Price, and Warren Chisum also took part in honoring this year's recipients.
