SAN ANGELO – At this year’s United Way of the Concho Valley’s Annual Awards Luncheon held at the McNease Convention Center, the theme was “Imagine the Possibilities”. 

Various awards were given to either companies, or employees. Among them was KLST-TV photographer, Freddy Deanda who never imagined the possibility that he would be the recipient of the Walton Foster Excellence in Media Award.

“I’m just a person that with my job I’ve had the opportunity to meet many people who later become friends.”

Did you ever expect this award and how important is it to you? 

“I prefer to put others in front of a camera and give them the opportunity that they deserve for organizing their events,” said Deanda.

“We, KLST TV, have been in business for 50 years and not everyone knows the hard work we all put in and what needs to be done to put a program together.” I Appreciate United Way and everyone who recognized my work and my family,” concluded Deanda.

United Way Campaign Chair, Joe Munoz announced that the 2017 Campaign raised a total of $1,187,664.
