Fran Padgett of The Weathervane Foundation has been named one of “Houston’s 50 Most Influential Women of 2010” by Houston Woman Magazine.
Each honoree was first nominated for inclusion on the “50 Women” list by a subscriber of Houston Woman Magazine and then selected by the staff of the publication.
According to Beverly Denver, publisher of Houston Woman Magazine, “Those selected as Houston’s 50 Most Influential Women of 2010 are individuals with vast networks of social and professional connections. They have earned an enviable reputation for possessing an expertise in a particular field or arena. They are considered knowledgeable, credible and trustworthy.

Since 2008, Houston Woman Magazine has published a special edition each year featuring those selected as Houston’s 50 Most Influential Women.
