The Cleveland/Bradley County community abounds with individuals who have found the places for which they are best fitted. Among the ones who rose to a higher level and a worthier attainment was M.C. Headrick for whom the highest honor given by the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce is named.
“The Chamber recognizes individuals who believed they could achieve their goals and dreams and who best demonstrate the principles of the late M.C. Headrick,” chairman of the Board Steven Wright said. “M.C. Headrick was a successful businessman who tenaciously believed in the concept of free enterprise. Each fall we invite Chamber members to nominate any person they feel best represents the ideals of the free enterprise system.”
Nomination forms and a complete list of award criteria are available at the Chamber office or by calling 472-6587. In addition to the form, nominations must include a resume of the candidate and a cover letter detailing reasons the nominee is eligible for the award. The selection committee may ask for additional information.
Robert Wright, chairman of the board for Wright Brothers Construction Company Inc., received the 2012 Headrick Award.
The Chamber will present this award at the 87th Annual Meeting in January 2013. Deadline for nominations is Nov. 9 at 5 p.m.
