Former TSRHC Chairman of the Board of Trustees Jack Hightower died in Austin, Texas, on Aug. 3 at the age of 86. Hightower served in the Texas House of Representatives, Texas Senate and U.S. House of Representatives, as well as a District Attorney, First Assistant Attorney General of Texas and on the Texas State Supreme Court. His commitment to service expanded to his Masonic roles, where he served as the Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Texas in 1972 and later as the Sovereign Grand Inspector General. Hightower was elected to the hospital’s board in 1991 and served on it until his death. Hightower and his wife, Colleen, were highly devoted to TSRHC, which inspired the hospital to name the TSRHC Children’s Theater in their honor.
