All-star donors

By Rob Kepple
TDCAF & TDCAA Executive Director in Austin

The Foundation leadership continues to be humbled by our supporters, people who care about our profession and want to see prosecutor training grow. We are especially awed by a few folks who prioritize prosecution and the Foundation on a regular basis. I think that before he passed, legendary retired Harris County Assistant District Attorney Lyn McClellan had donated to the Foundation “in honor of” about two-thirds of the prosecutors in the state!

            I want to add Beth Toben, Assistant County & District Attorney in Limestone County, to the all-star list! I so enjoy coming into my office and seeing a little envelope from Beth on my desk. It is gratifying to know we are supported by such great people who keep our profession high on their list of priorities.
