The Cheryl A. Soward Communicator of Distinction Award
Designed to honor the best and the brightest in the field of government communications, the Cheryl A. Soward Communicator of Distinction Award recipient is selected by the TAMIO Board. The Board chooses an individual who is a government communication professional, public information officer, and/or administrator who has excelled in the communication field.
A former television reporter and anchor, Cheryl A. Soward was named the director of public information for the City of Corpus Christi in 2002. In a relatively short municipal government career, she amassed a wealth of expertise through membership and participation in TAMIO and 3CMA. Cheryl was a member of the TAMIO Board of Directors when she lost her battle with leukemia in 2006. The Cheryl A. Soward Communicator of Distinction Award was created to remember and honor Cheryl’s life and career and to encourage the level of participation, education, networking, and enthusiasm for her profession that she brought to her membership in TAMIO.
