Metropolitan Lubbock Rotary Club and Prosperity Bank recognize local heroes

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Metropolitan Lubbock Rotary Club and Prosperity Bank are proud to co-host the 15th annual “Unsung Heroes Award Recognition Ceremony” on Thursday March 1st from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the Prosperity Bank Conference Center, 1501 Ave Q in Lubbock.

An EMS person, Fireman, Policeman, TX DPS Officer, and Sheriff Deputy will be honored as the 2017 Unsung Heroes of Lubbock for their sacrifice, dedication and willingness to risk their lives in making Lubbock a safe place to live.

Each Honoree has been selected by their peers in their respective organizations. Representative Dustin Burrows, of TX District 83, will be the guest speaker and Jeff Bailey will provide the music. Chick Fil A 69th and Slide, 82nd and Milwaukee will be providing the meal.

The idea of this event arose after the horrific event of 9/11/01 and the heroic actions of the First Responders in New York City. The Unsung Heroes Award Ceremony provides all the citizens of Lubbock an opportunity to express in a small way their thanks and gratitude for the sacrifices that Lubbock’ First Responders exhibit each and every day.
