Longtime San Marcos resident Rose Brooks was recognized by the Hays County Commissioners Court earlier this week on the occasion of her 80th birthday by passing a resolution recognizing her deep commitment to the greater Hays County Area.
“Rose Brooks is part of the heart and soul of Hays County,” the resolution says in part.
“She understands that a successful life involves civic engagement — standing up for what is right and working for change where change is necessary. She never set out to be a leader, but in speaking for those whose voices were not heard, she drew respect and admiration.”
“I am deeply honored today,” Brooks told the court.
Brooks is an active member of the Jackson Chapel, an organizer of the Juneteenth Scholarship Committee and a participant in the Garland Warren-Neal Burleson Memorial Cake Auction.
She is also a volunteer at Central Texas Medical Center, and helps feed the sick and homebound in her community.
