East Fort Worth Business Association held its Annual Outstanding Awards and Officer Installation Banquet on Thursday, Nov. 5 at the Stay Express Hotel Horizon Ballroom. Each year, the EFWBA selects Outstanding business, organizations and individuals who exemplify the best that East Fort Worth has to offer. In addition to awards, the organization presents Outstanding Students with Scholarships.
This year, sponsors donated enough money to present three Seniors with scholarships to help them attend the college of their choice. These students also received a proclamation from District 10 State Senator Konni Burton.
The Association also inducted the new Board of Directors for 2015–2016. Wanda Conlin is the new President.
The next Association meeting is December 3, 2015 and the guest speaker is our new FWISD Superintendent. Visit our sister site at www.efwba.org for meeting information, and the biographies of the Award Winners (on the events page).
