   BANQUET BRINGS BIG AWARDS

  Well-known farmer, businessman and chair of the Arkansas State Highway Commission, John Ed Regenold, was the recipient of the 2014 Lifetime Community Achievement award at the Annual Chamber of Commerce banquet held on March 10th at Arkansas Northeastern College.  Regenold, who is the tenth winner of the award, said “It means a lot to be honored by your own community.”  In the presentation, Chamber past-president George Hubbard cited Regenold as a “ a man who operates most comfortably behind the scenes, but a man who gives you his word and means it, and a man who never seems to stop working for the things he believes in.”
    L.C. Hartsfield was named Citizen of the Year for 2014, honoring his outstanding work as a volunteer leader. He has served on a number of boards, and notably, was the creator and executor of the successful “Ghosts of Highway 61” event that drew antique busses and their owners from all over the nation.  Nucor-Yamato was selected Large Business/Industry of the Year, and Family Eye Care won the Small Business/Industry Honor. The Pride in Property award went to Dr. Scott Johnson Vision Care,  who is a repeat winner. Educator of the Year is Tracy Plunkett, of Blytheville Primary School.  In a highlight of the banquet, all past LCA recipients and Citizens of the Year came forward to commemorate a decade of Awards of Excellence. “As you look at these people across this stage,” said presenter Liz Smith, “think of all the things in Blytheville that would not be without them.  They are people who have had the courage to dream and hope, and the courage to take action to fulfill their commitments.”  Present were Lifetime Community Achievement winners Bo Huffman, Mason Day, Mary Gay Shipley, Mac Williams, David King Mike Huffman, Emmanuel Lofton; and Citizens of the Year George Hubbard, Monte Hodges, Chuck Ryan, Randy Scott, Chris Cooper, Steve Southard, Bill Kenner,  and Peggy Lemons. The group received a well-deserved standing ovation from banquet-goers.
