Lufkin Chamber now accepting nominations for the Angelina County Business Hall of Fame
LUFKIN, TEXAS (June 14, 2012)… The Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for the Angelina County Business Hall of Fame presented by the Lufkin/Angelina County Economic Development Partnership.
The Angelina County Business Hall of Fame program is designed to honor past prominent business leaders who have made extraordinary contributions to Lufkin/Angelina County and earned the respect of the local community.
To be considered a Hall of Fame Laureate, an individual’s record of business achievement must demonstrate excellence in the following general categories: business excellence; entrepreneurial spirit; courageous thinking and action; inspiring leadership; community impact; positive role model; enduring accomplishments; and local influence. Hall of Fame Laureates are individuals whose work moved the Lufkin/Angelina County community in a better, stronger direction. This honor is given posthumously. No more than five individuals are inducted annually. Nominations remain on file for five years. The Selection Committee is most concerned with “why this person should be honored as a member of the Angelina County Business Hall of Fame.”
A volunteer task force selects the laureates. The selected laureates will be inducted into the Angelina County Business Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the Kurth Memorial Library, August 28, 2012. A portrait plaque of each laureate will be displayed at the Business Hall of Fame.
Persons may be honored in the following categories: The Pioneer Award for business leaders who have added to the prestige and growth of early Angelina County; The Contemporary Award for business leaders who have added to the continued prestige and economic growth of present Angelina County.
The deadline for nomination submissions is June 29, 2012 by 5pm. Visit www.LufkinTexas.org for the nomination form.
Nominations must be received at the Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber of Commerce, 1615 S. Chestnut St. Lufkin, TX 75901 by 5 p.m. Friday, June 29, 2012. They can be faxed to 936-634-8726.
