During the annual Installation & Awards Reception, Greater Chattanooga Realtors presented the George Kangles Community Citizenship Award to local realtor Becky Cope English. The award was established in 2011 to remember the efforts of the late George Kangles and his dedication to serving the community and the Association. Mr. Kangles’ governmental and political affairs work on behalf of the Association at the local, state, and national level was unprecedented. Mr. Kangle’s commitment to governmental and political affairs should be an example to all of us that we, too, can make a difference in not only our industry but our community as well.

This award, unlike many others, is presented only to signal a distinct recognition of the worthiest recipients who meet the ideals embodied in the award. In fact, since 2011 the award has only been presented five times exemplifying the very select few who have personified such an achievement.

The award honors a realtor who has a demonstrated positive and discernible impact on the governmental affairs activities of the association affecting the real estate industry and the community at state and local levels. Past recipients of the George Kangles Community Citizenship Award include: Ron Tucker (2017), Kathy Tucker (2015), Randy Durham (2013), and Lois Killebrew (2012).

Ms. English has fulfilled these requirements without the first thought of receiving any type of recognition. The dedication and passion for governmental and political advocacy is exemplary. Ms. English is revered by all who have had the pleasure of knowing her. Ms. English’s impact on the association has been essential to the role realtors continue to play in the world of government and politics.

“I was so excited to see Becky get the Kangles Award,” said Kim Bass, 2018 Greater Chattanooga Realtors president. “Becky has been extremely active in our community and governmental affairs. She is a true advocate for property rights,” said Bass.

Officials said, "Whether attending Realtor Day on the Hill in Washington D.C. and Nashville, attending local governmental and political functions, or inspiring fellow realtors to take action on important topics affecting the community, Ms. English is always willing to be of service to others. The importance of Ms. English to the community is recognized by realtors and political leaders alike. The knowledge she has instilled, and the leadership provided to those who have worked with her over the years can easily be surmised with this award."
