The Katy Area Economic Development Council again is looking for candidates for its annual award named after community leader Stan C. Stanley.
Stanley was active in Boy Scouts of America and a supporter of the Katy Independent School District through various projects. The district named an elementary school after him and his wife, Patsy. He also was active in the Katy Area EDC.
He died in March 2016 and the Katy Area EDC created in his honor the Stan C. Stanley (Eagle) Leadership and Economic Development Award. The award honors a volunteer and an elected official for their service from Nov. 30, 2018 to Dec. 1, 2019. The deadline to submit nominations is Jan. 1, 2020. Go to https://tinyurl.com/u6dwyr9 for the nomination form.
Forms can be submitted to [email protected] or mailed to or dropped off at the Katy Area EDC office, 2002 W. Grand Parkway N., Suite 220, Katy, Texas 77449.
Contact Lance LaCour, Katy Area EDC president/CEO, for more information at [email protected] or call 281-396-2200.
The award recognizes a Katy-area volunteer who has made contributions in leadership and economic development. The award winner will be selected by a committee assembled by the Katy Area EDC based on criteria including but not limited to, years of service, leadership skills demonstrated, special achievements and qualities Stanley exhibited such as being faithful, conscientious, unselfish and committed to the Katy area community.
The nominee in the elected official category must have several years serving in a capacity as an elected official with a proven track record of contributing to community development and/or economic development. The nominee must also exhibit faithful, conscientious, unselfish and helpful service with strong leadership skills.
Stan Goss won the inaugural Stan C. Stanley award in 2016. Goss, a businessman, was recognized for leading the formation of Katy Area EDC Visions events, which helped recruit UH to develop a $46 million campus in Katy area, and leading the formation of the Transportation and Mobility Taskforce.
In 2017, the EDC recognized an elected official and a volunteer. Retired State Rep. Bill Callegari received the award in the volunteer category. Former District 28 State Rep. John Zerwas won the award in the elected official category.
