The David C. Wiley Award was created to recognize exceptional individuals who have made remarkable contributions to the field of teen pregnancy prevention in Texas through service, leadership, advocacy, or research. People on the forefront of this work, and those who have dedicated the better part of their careers and lives to ending teen pregnancy, deserve gratitude for their achievements.
Last year’s winner was Dr. Peggy Smith, founding board member of the Texas Campaign and relentless advocate for the young people of Texas. Dr. Smith is a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Psychology, and Pediatrics, and Director of the Baylor Teen Health Clinics in Houston.
The Community Partner Award celebrates fellow organizations across the state that are committed to outstanding work in the prevention of teen pregnancy. This work has been proven to significantly improve the lives of Texas adolescents and their families, and the Texas Campaign is proud to highlight and acknowledge the community partners who are leading the way. It takes a collective effort to advocate for teen pregnancy prevention and only together can we make significant progress towards this most-important mission.
Last year’s inaugural Community Partner Award was given to the North Texas Alliance to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy in Teens (ntarupt), a mission-driven nonprofit and valuable ally in the fight against unintended teen pregnancy in Texas communities. Since starting in 2014, Ntarupt has partnered with over 30 different organizations to improve the quality of life for youth and families across North Texas.
