Texas Appleseed is deeply saddened by the loss of Bill Powers. In 2010, Texas Appleseed was honored to present Powers with the J. Chrys Dougherty Good Apple Award. The award is our highest recognition to luminaries who have helped shape Texas for the better and whose work has inspired us all. Powers was nothing short of the obvious choice. A steadfast champion of protecting public interest, with a noble passion for increasing diversity in both higher education as well as the legal profession, Powers wholly embodied the mission of our organization.
Powers’ powerful spirit of courage and integrity will be greatly missed. Texas Appleseed extends our deepest sorrows to his family.
