SafeHaven of Tarrant County is excited to announce our annual event, A Dapper Dinner: Cowtown Style, which will take place on April 8, 2016, at River Ranch Stockyards in Fort Worth, TX. The evening will be filled with dining, dancing, a live auction, and an award ceremony to recognize one of Tarrant County’s finest gents!
For the past several years, SafeHaven has sought to acknowledge and support men who speak out against domestic violence and whose continued efforts profoundly affect the safety of many families in our community. This year’s honoree, Judge B. Glen Whitley, will be recognized for his significant contributions personally and professionally to ending domestic violence and for his commitment to Tarrant County as a whole.
2016 Award Recipient, Tarrant County Judge B. Glen Whitley
Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley presides over the Tarrant County Commissioners Court. He is a leader on transportation, sustainable communities, efficient government, air quality, higher education, support for veterans and military families as well as youth and children’s issues.
Judge Whitley graduated from Grand Prairie High School, earned an accounting degree from the University of Texas at Arlington and served in the U.S. Naval Reserve. In 1983, he co-founded the accounting firm Whitley Penn with offices now in Fort Worth, Dallas and Houston. He was elected a Tarrant County Commissioner in 1996 and Tarrant County Judge in 2006.
Under his leadership, the county’s transportation bond package helps cities build and widen roads. He has played a leading role improving access and care at the JPS Health Network. He is proud that Tarrant County has a lower tax rate than when he was elected. Judge Whitley was named County Leader of the Year for 2010 by American City and County magazine. He and his wife, Brenda, live in Hurst, Texas, have three grown children and six grandchildren.
When One Safe Place, Fort Worth’s Family Justice Center, was first conceived, staff and developers recognized that domestic violence was not limited to one city, but needed to have the collective effort of the county. Judge B. Glen Whitley was the first county official to stand with One Safe Place financially and continues to be an outspoken advocate and supporter of domestic violence issues in our community. SafeHaven is proud to honor this leader, and we hope that you will join us as we celebrate his commitment to Tarrant County.
