Highly regarded as business leaders and philanthropists, they have made a tremendously positive impact on North Texas.

They have consistently promoted Parker County’s excel- lence and service to society, while supporting a remarkable range of programs and facilities. Their community contributions and leadership reflect the breadth and depth of their commitment to improving the lives of others. For decades, George’s voice has been one of the most influential and respected, and made him an inspiration to us all.
