Humble Noon Lions Club President Neil Lander presented the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award to Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen for her leadership during Hurricane Harvey.
"The Melvin Jones Fellowship Award is our highest form of recognition," said Lander. "It is named after our founder, Melvin Jones, back in 1917. The Fellowship award embodies humanitarian ideals consistent with the nature and purpose of Lionism."
Lander also said that the Humble Noon Lions Club provides eye exams and glasses to Humble ISD students who can't afford them, typically 100 per year, and also funds special needs grants.
