the Texas Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation

the David K. Brace recipient exemplifies the best in service,
teaching, administration and research by an individual who
has been an association member for at least 10 years and has
at least 20 years of experience in their profession.
“I have had
the good fortune to work with many faculty and administrators
who support professional associations and faculty involvement
in them,” said Dr. James, chair of the TWU department
of health studies. “It is a tremendous honor both personally
and professionally to be recognized by your peers for an award
such as the David K. Brace Award.”
Prior to joining
TWU in 2006, Dr. James taught at Texas State University (formerly
Southwest Texas State University) for more than 20 years.
She has written and co-written several textbooks and articles
on health education and is a member of several state, regional
and national health promotion organizations, including the
Texas School Health Association and the American Alliance
for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

4,500 members and is the only association in Texas serving
