Immediate Past President
I’m Allison Harrell of Bryan Broadcasting, Aggie class of 2005, and a College Station resident since 2003. My introduction to Keep Brazos Beautiful was as a volunteer in the annual Texas Trash-Off. This signature event gathers volunteers of all ages to pick up litter across BCS and makes an immediate impact on our community! I am proud to be a part of an organization that engages children and adults to take ownership in the beauty of our home. We always say, who Keeps Brazos Beautiful?… WE ALL DO!
I am proud to be a member of Keep Brazos Beautiful. I have seen many changes come to our community in my 36 years here. The importance of how big an impact we make on our environment is a growing concern for me. KBB has so many avenues of support and teaching for our community and I am proud to be involved with it. It is important to help educate and assist our community in the involvement we each have to do our part for conservation and environment. I believe if you plant a seed, it will grow, be it a real tree or a seed within us.
Brazos County Representative
I’m on the KBB board because I believe a greener and cleaner community adds to our quality of life here in the Brazos County. KBB promotes these goals through education and outreach.
City of Bryan Representative
City of College Station Representative
My name is Jesse Turner and I am currently the Resident Director for the Park West Apartments. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s in Environmental Studies. I was the intern for Keep Brazos Beautiful for almost two years while I was working towards my degree. I learned the ins and outs of all aspects of the organization. I promised myself that wherever I ended up after graduation, I would apply for the board there. I ended up staying in College Station for my job and applied back at the organization I already knew! I love the organization and I love what it does for our community.
The reason for me becoming a member of Keep Brazos Beautiful, came after being honored at your 2017 Awards Luncheon Ceremony. I was then asked if I would consider becoming a Keep Brazos Beautiful board member, I accepted. One of the greatest things in life we can do is to give. This giving can be done through volunteering in our community, church or just helping through different organizations. I saw in Keep Brazos Beautiful, a bunch of beautiful professionals volunteering their efforts and taking time to serve in their community.
