The Champion of the Axe Award was presented to Governor Dewhurst during an awards ceremony and luncheon on Tuesday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin.
“It’s an honor to stand among the true heroes, those brave men and women who courageously serve our state when the fires rage,” said Dewhurst. “It’s important that we never lose sight of the critical work they’re doing. I hope every Texan will join Tricia and I in supporting the Texas Wildfire Relief Fund. It’s doing great things for Texas’ volunteer firefighting force.”
