On May 16, 2017, Emma Glosson of the Woodmen of America presented Margaret Houston, President of the Friends of the Midland Library, with their “Hometown Hero” award for her community service. The award states:
“Margaret Houston, you believe in volunteer service, and so do we! As a fraternal financial service organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for families and communities, we recognize your accomplishments and appreciate your contribution to your community. You’re truly a Hometown Hero!”
In addition to her tireless efforts to establish a library in the Midland community, Mrs. Houston is also actively involved in local soccer teams, boy scouts and Bethel Methodist Church. Margaret has a “can-do” spirit that energizes those around her. Under her leadership the Friends of the Midland Library have raised over $11,000 towards a new library facility in Midland, NC. Margaret’s energy, enthusiasm and dedication to whatever task she tackles make her the perfect candidate for the Hometown Hero award.
