Texas Callers' Prestige Award Recipients


Welcome to the Texas State Callers' Prestige Award Recipients Page. It is here that we proudly recognize Texas Callers who have called for more than 20 Years in Texas and contributed to the overall success of Square Dancing in Texas. We honor their achievements, thank them for their contributions, and award them special recognition by their peers. 


These recipients have displayed true leadership and professionalism in Square Dance Calling.  They have held offices in local, state and/or national callers' associations. They have fostered cooperative relationships with fellow dancers and callers.  The have consistently applied the TSCA and CALLERLAB Code of Ethics. Many have called for the same club 20 years or more, worked with exhibitions, wheelchair dancers, etc. Many have contributed 100 or more hours calling square dance parties and demonstrations for church groups, school classes, state fairs, festivals and nursing homes, etc.  They have also taught classes to bring numerous new dancers into our Square Dance Activity.  These callers are among the best that Texas has to offer.
