Bayou Preservation Association co-founder, Terry Hershey, inspired the inception of the awards because of her tireless and outstanding dedication to halting the Army Corps of Engineers from channelizing and concreting Buffalo Bayou in the 1960s along with then-Congressman George H.W. Bush and developer George Mitchell.
