WARNER ROBERTS BIO
Warner Roberts has had success in many careers: as a fashion model, an award-winning television journalist, an actress in film and theatre, writer and speaker.  She hosted “The Warner Roberts Show” and numerous television specials where she interviewed many of America’s most celebrated personalities.  Recently Warner has had roles in eight feature films.  She is also a contributing editor for the national publication, “Cowboys and Indians” and for “H Texas” Magazine.  Warner created The Social Book in 1996.  
 
Warner’s community service work has included spearheading events and serving as a board member for many organizations.  Her history of volunteerism in the city has been rewarded many times, with awards that include the Crohn’s and Colitis “Woman of Distinction,” the Savvy Award, the Cancer League “Pacesetter of the Year” and “Entertainer of the Year” Award, the American Heart Association “Heart of Houston” Award, the Shrine Hospital Award, Silver Grace Hope Award, Wellsprings Award, Houston Delta Gamma Foundation “Women of Vision” Award,  the Cancer League “Heart of Houston” Award, the Houston Children’s Charity “Heart of Houston” Award, The Mission of Yahweh “Leaders and Legends” Award, the Lady Washington Chapter NSDAR “Excellence in Community Service” Award,  Easter Seals “Hats Off to Mothers” Award and the “I Am Waters” Award.  She was the Honoree of the first American Heart Gala, the National Kidney of America Gala and the American ORT Gala.  She has been honored three times by the March of Dimes, five times by the Leukemia Society and once by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Cerebral Palsy Foundation and Texas Children’s Hospital.  The Houston Chronicle named her one of the “Most Beautiful Houstonians.”
 
Warner has been profiled in three books, including Texas Woman by Richard Pruitt and David Woo, Evin Thayer Mayor’s Millennium Celebrity Series, a book  that includes photographs of 100 prominent Houstonians, and Wind for New Wings .. a Message from the Leaders of Today to the Leaders of the New Millennium by Bertie Simmons.  
 
Her love of hearts inspired her to create “A Celebration of Hearts” museum in the lobby of the Dr. Denton Cooley Texas Heart Institute, collecting hearts from celebrities nationally and locally for the permanent exhibit.  Also, she created an annual event that honors “Houston Sweethearts” on Valentine’s Day.  She created and annually presents “Houston Treasures” for The Social Book.
 
The first Mission of Yahweh dorm, for which Warner raised the funds, was named The Warner Roberts Building in 2017.  Mayor Sylvester Turner proclaimed  “Warner Roberts Day.”  She has received this honor from two previous mayors.
 
Warner’s top priority is her beloved family, husband Bob, son Bob, Jr., his wife Kristin and their sons Bob III, Ryan and John Luke and son Cliff Lee, his wife Angie and their sons Lee and Cliff.
