The Luncheon was organized by the Elnita McClain Women's Center to honor and recognize women who had gone the extra mile to help their fellow citizens and given back to their local neighborhoods. Barbara was honored because she had personally given out water and ice to people during Hurricane Harvey in 2017.

She was also recognized for the work that she does with a local charity called "No More Victims". Barbara describes that this charity "helps the disadvantaged children of incarcerated and drug addicted parents. We try to help them get back in high school, graduate, and sponsor them to go to college. Once a quarter I go to the prisons and give speeches to the parents to let them know what it is that their kids are feeling and how they can be productive citizens when they get out of prison and help their kids. We have students who have graduated from TSU, LSU, Stanford, University of Texas, University of Houston. Just recently one of our students earned their PhD at Stanford."

Wow! Check out Barbara's award.
