At the 2017 Waco Masonic Awards night, two people were honored…
Brenda Light received the Community Builder Award. Brenda is well known throughout the Greater Waco area as someone who has been involved for years in a variety of worthy causes. She has given an extraordinary amount of her time to masonic functions through the years but she has also been very involved in youth sports, historic organizations, and more. As a leader for Girls in Action, Brenda has established herself as a unique role model for the future women of Waco.
