 It is with great sadness that I write to notify you of the death of one of our beloved TEHA members. 

Robert (Bob) Lee Drummond, 82, of Garland, Texas passed away on July 10, 2020 in Garland, Texas. He was born on July 10, 1938 to Ralph Drummond and Emma Harvey in New Port, Arkansas.

Bob served over 40 years as an Environmental Health Specialist with the City of Dallas, Maricopa County, Arizona and the City of McKinney as well as being retained by private companies as a consultant. Bob was a member of TEHA since 1974 and he attended all annual educational conferences from the time he became a member until his health no longer allowed him to.

Bob loved networking with other public health professionals and was an avid encourager of new members as a mentor. With Tom Edmondson as Committee Chair, he, Janet Greenwood, Joe Vikery and Guy Wilkinson composed an History of TEHA book. He received our prestigious I. E. Scott Award in 1994.

TDLR Waives Continuing Education, Other Requirements

To help keep our licensees ready and available to assist with combatting the spread of the COVID-19 virus, TDLR requested authority from Governor Greg Abbott to suspend certain regulatory requirements statewide. Waiving strict compliance with these regulatory provisions will ensure that services are not hindered or prevented during this very critical time.

The Office of the Governor has granted TDLR the authority to take the following actions:

  • Waiving continuing education requirements for all licenses expiring in March, April, and May 2020. Licensees will still submit their renewal applications, pay the required fees, and have their criminal histories checked but they will not need to complete any required continuing education requirements this licensing cycle.
