Leadership Lufkin Accepting Nominations for Silver Spike Award


The Lufkin/Angelina Chamber of Commerce is now taking nominations for the 25th Annual Jack O. (Butch) McMullen Silver Spike Award, to be presented at the First Friday Luncheon on October 2, 2015 at Crown Colony Country Club.

Since 1991, Leadership Lufkin alumni have selected annually an outstanding graduate of the program to honor with the Jack O (Butch) McMullen Silver Spike Award.  Named in memory of Butch McMullen, of the Angelina and Neches River Railroad, the award is presented to an outstanding Leadership Lufkin graduate of at least 10 years who has excelled in their role as a leader.

The recipient of the Jack O. (Butch) McMullen Silver Spike award must exhibit the same illustrious leadership characteristics as McMullen, including being a leader and role model in their profession, church and/or community, and a positive influence and source of encouragement for involvement in the community. The recipient should also have a heart and vision for the future of Angelina County.

Nomination forms are available at the Lufkin/Angelina Chamber of Commerce office, or can be downloaded from leadershiplufkin.com, as well as a complete list of Leadership Lufkin graduates.  The deadline for nominations is Friday, September 11, 2015, and can be faxed to Susie Cardwell at 936-634-8726 or emailed to scardwell@lufkintexas.org
