AUSTIN, TX---The Texas Corrections Association has selected State Representative Jerry Madden as the recipient of its 2011 Clarence N. Stevenson Memorial Award. The Stevenson Award annually recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions over an extended period of time to the corrections profession. The announcement was made during the opening ceremony of the TCA 2011 Annual Conference held at Moody Gardens in Galveston on June 5th.

In bestowing this award, TCA President Michael Noyes, Director the Dallas Community Supervision and Corrections Department, said, “We are very happy to honor a true champion of the corrections efforts and profession in Texas, Representative Jerry Madden. Chairman Madden has been at the forefront of important legislative initiatives impacting corrections including the 2007 criminal justice system reforms. He is recognized not only in Texas but on a national level for his knowledge and efforts in criminal justice.”

Madden, who has represented District 67 (part of Collin County) since 1993, has been a participant in many forums and conferences on corrections and criminal justice across the nation, and continues to be invited to do more of the same. He first was named the Chair of the House Committee on Corrections in 2005, and presently serves in that capacity.

TCA named the Stevenson Award in memory of Judge Clarence Stevenson (1934-1993) who served as Chairman of the Texas Adult Probation Commission and as Chairperson of the Judicial Advisory Council as well as serving as a member of the Texas Board of Criminal Justice. Stevenson was widely recognized by state leaders for his commitment to sound principles and was the embodiment of the community corrections system in the State of Texas.

Texas Corrections Association includes more than 600 corrections professionals in Texas and is the umbrella organization that encompasses all areas of the criminal justice system and related groups. TCA is dedicated to enhancing and building the corrections profession.
