The Bryan Rotary 10 Business Performance Awards Luncheon will be held on June 14, noon to 1:30pm, with seating beginning at 11:30am, at the Hilton College Station.
The luncheon will recognize the Top 10 fastest-growing, small businesses in Brazos County for their achievements and for their significant economic impact on the Brazos Valley community. The luncheon is sponsored by the Bryan Rotary Club, in cooperation with the Bryan College Station Chamber of Commerce and in partnership with the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University. The primary financial underwriter for the awards ceremony is Anco Insurance, located in Bryan.
The concept for the awards programs was introduced in 1993 as an economic development program and reflects the respect Rotarians have for the value of productive work and for all useful occupations. A proposal was presented to Louis Newman of Newman Printing Company, asking him to underwrite the costs of the Awards program, which was named in his honor from 1994-2015. Newman continued their involvement in Bryan Rotary’s Business Awards, but the financial supporter changed, as well as the name of the awards program, to Tom Light Chevrolet in 2015, and in 2016, Anco Insurance became the primary financial underwriter for what is now recognized as the Bryan Rotary 10 Business Performance Awards Program.
Over the years, various changes and additions have been incorporated into the Awards Program, but the focus on local economic growth continues to be its main purpose. In 1998, “The Bryan Rotary Club/Anco Insurance Award for Lifetime Business Achievement” was introduced and it will be presented at this year’s luncheon.
The keynote speaker at the event is Brad Napp, a small business advocate in the office of Governor Greg Abbott. Reservations are $40 each with a table option available, and the deadline for reservations is Friday, June 7.
