Congratulations to Lonnie Cornwell, this month's Spirit of Rowlett Award winner! This award is to publicly recognize ordinary residents doing extra-ordinary things in our community, and the recipients are nominated by YOU – the citizens of Rowlett.
Lonnie was nominated by previous Spirit of Rowlett honoree, Wayne Baxter, who says:
"Committed to creating, exploring and experiencing the outdoor opportunities right here in our hometown, Lonnie has served as Vice Chairman on the Rowlett Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (of which he's been a member for 10 years!). Lonnie was instrumental in the Kids Kingdom rebuild and is really excited about the future of the Environmental Learning Center. Lonnie is on the board of Keep Rowlett Beautiful, and has also served as president of the organization."
We hope you enjoy this interview of Lonnie by Councilmember Blake Margolis.
