Auditorium to be named for Mosley

The City of Houston will recognize Ruby Mosley for her commitment and service to the Acres Homes community by renaming the Acres Homes MSC Auditorium in her honor. This celebratory recognition will take place there on Saturday, Feb. 5 at 11 a.m.

Mosley was born in Mexia, TX , April 25, 1929 to Willie and Rosie Bell Standmire-Sanders attended Prairie View A & M University and moved to Houston in 1948. She became a licensed beautician from Franklin Beauty College and was later trained in community organizing by Alex Branch, a former community leader in Acres Homes.

For 18 years, she worked as a Health Coordinator, advocating to provide water, sewer and other city services in the rural areas of Houston that only had outhouses. In 1982, she worked tirelessly as a City of Houston Community Service Supervisor to provide essential services for the senior citizens and children of the Cuney Homes Housing Development, and established a school for the children living there; that was later named in her honor.

In 1995, she retired from the City of Houston and has since served full time as a most dedicated community leader — working for children, adults and senior citizens of Acres Homes. Mosley was integral in the design and building of the Acres Homes Multi-Service Center, the Acres Homes Public Library and the HPD Command Station. She serves on the Old Acres Homes Citizen Council, the Acres Homes Multi-Service Center Community Advisory Board and the Police Positive Interaction Program Board.

She has been an active member of the Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church for 60 years, where she faithfully serves as choir president and secretary of the Trustee Board. Affectionately called the “Mayor of Acres Homes”, Mosley has dedicated her life to serving others. She believes that if other neighborhoods in the city can have grand amenities, Acres Homes deserves the same.  Her amazing dedication and unselfish deeds to the Acres Homes community will impact this city for years to come.
