Parents Television Council Charters Fourth Texas Chapter

Lubbock Chapter Started by Crosbyton Mother


LOS ANGELES (June 5, 2008) — The Parents Television Council™, a non-partisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment, announced Rebekah Robertson as the director of the Lubbock Chapter.  This is the fourth chapter in Texas, joining Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth and the San Antonio Chapters.


As a proud mother of four, Robertson is deeply concerned about the quality of today’s entertainment and the negative impact images can have on our youth.  “There is no greater calling for me than to support and advocate for families’ pleas for an end to vulgarity and profanity during the family hour.  I am pleased to take on this leadership role with the PTC and join with other Americans who want to clean up TV and return to a place where our culture takes responsibility for molding the character of our children,” said Robertson.


The Lubbock Chapter will both educate and mobilize the community to initiate positive change in the quality of entertainment.  The chapter will also reach out to local television affiliates and advertisers to increase support for more socially responsible programs.  Robertson and her members will work closely with local state representatives on bringing key issues to the forefront including the restricted sale of “Mature” rated video games to minors and cable choice.


A Texas native, Robertson has been a longtime volunteer throughout her community. She is an active supporter of the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Lubbock and serves as Social Club President at Lubbock Christian University.  She also was a team leader for mission service trips to Germany, Costa Rica, and Japan.  Robertson received her Bachelor degree in Bible/Mission from Lubbock Christian University and currently is a homemaker.


Tim Winter, president of the PTC, said, “We have had great success with our Texas chapters and believe Rebekah will be a great addition.  Her passion for the well-being of children sets a high bar for others to emulate.”
