Interfaith of The Woodlands announced its annual recipients of the Hometown Heroes award in November ahead of its March 2023 gala. The awards celebrate individuals and organizations who have supported and made a “lasting impact” in The Woodlands area, according to the news release.

This year’s recipients are Shirelle Chiment, Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson, Danny and Angie Signorelli, Theresa Wagamen, and Ann Wolford. Also nominated are Conroe ISD and the Cypress Woodlands Junior Forum.

“Our community nominates individuals who they believe are deserving of this honor. We are blessed, here in The Woodlands area, to have so many neighbors who choose to share their time, talents and treasures, giving back and making positive impact to make our community,” said Missy Herndon, president and CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands.

This year’s winners join 146 other Hometown Heroes who have been celebrated over the years.

Henderson expressed his gratitude for being recognized.

“I am incredibly honored to have been recognized as one of the 2023 Interfaith of The Woodlands Hometown Heroes. This recognition’s current and previous recipients are some of our community’s most compassionate and innovative leaders," he said.

The Hometown Hero nominees will be celebrated in March 2023 at The Woodlands Celebration of Excellence Gala. The gala also raises money for Interfaith to provide crisis services to South Montgomery County; roughly $450,000 was raised during the 2022 gala.
