Monica McDivitt of Katy has been recognized as one of Whataburger's Hometown Hero award winners.
McDivitt received the honor for her efforts in forming Special Buddies and Bear Buddies, which foster relationships between students and those with special needs, according to a press release.
As part of her recognition by the franchise, McDivitt will be treated to a breakfast party for herself and 20 of her friends at a neighborhood Whataburger restaurant.
"We have some of the most generous fans and customers who are more than worthy of being recognized for their community contributions," said Pam Cox, group director of communications for Whataburger, on the company's website. "We are excited to have the chance to honor a few of the amazing, everyday heroes in our local communities who you might not see in the local newspaper, but deserve to be celebrated for what they do to help others."
The company accepted nominations for the honor through Friday, Dec. 21 on its Facebook page and will announce other winners through Friday, Dec. 28.
