San Antonio (June 24, 2015) – Representative Lyle Larson (R-San Antonio) recognized Pape-Dawson Engineers with a Texas Treasure Business Award from the Texas Historical Commission (THC), today at the company’s headquarters. The Texas Treasure Business Award program pays tribute to businesses that have provided employment opportunities and support to the state’s economy for 50 years or more.
“Pape-Dawson Engineers has built a reputation as a leading engineering firm in Texas,” said Representative Larson. “That reputation is founded on excellence in their profession and a commitment to the communities Pape-Dawson serves. Through landmark projects ranging from city utilities, to the development of new neighborhoods and the creation of popular tourist attractions, Pape-Dawson has been shaping the Texas landscape for 50 years. As a friend of the Dawson family for more than 40 years, it is an honor to present them with the Texas Treasure Business Award for their commitment to the Texas economy.”
Created in 2005 through legislation authored by Sen. Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio) and sponsored by Rep. Charles “Doc” Anderson (R-Waco), the program recognizes established Texas businesses and their exceptional historical contributions to the state’s economic growth and prosperity.
“Pape-Dawson is honored to be recognized by the Texas Historical Commission with the Texas Treasure Business Award,” said Sam Dawson, chief executive officer of Pape-Dawson Engineers. “We owe this award to the dedication, expertise and integrity of our employees across the state.”
