Brazosport Facts, Jan. 31, 2007 ANGLETON - Renee' McGuire challenged herself to help those in need, including a boy with severe mental and physical disabilities. The boy could not speak or walk, and he had the IQ of an 18-month-old child, said Fran Coppinger, former recipient of Philanthropist of the Year. McGuire, founder of the non-profit Forgotten Angels, placed the boy in a group homes with three caregivers. With their care the boy began to participate in daily activities. He learned how to speak and he no longer has to rely on a wheelchair because he can walk. McGuire was honored this week along with Emma Womack of West Columbia for their desire to help humankind. The two women received the Community Foundation of Brazoria County's Philanthropist of the Year award during a dinner Monday in Angleton. Womack's efforts include founding the Columbia Historical Museum in West Columbia. She established an endowed scholarship for Brazoria County students majoring in agriculture and donated a house for University of Texas Medical Branch students to stay in while they interned in West Columbia, said presenter Tina Bonnen. "Emma and her late husband are devout Aggies, so the house they donated for UTMB had to be named the Reveille House," Bonnen said.
