A San Angelo woman who’s worked for years to help Texans with mental health issues has received statewide recognition.
Jackie Shannon was honored during a reception at M.H-M.R Thursday evening.
In June her son traveled to Dallas to receive the Frank Adams Outstanding Volunteer Service Award on her behalf, during the annual Texas Council Conference.
The award recognizes people who volunteer in the community center system.
Shannon is a passionate advocate and the mother of a child diagnosed with a mental illness.
