Congratulations to Lee Shaw, 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.
Lee was nominated by Councilmember Whitney Lanning, who says:
"A longtime volunteer for the Rowlett Fire Department, Lee is the retired Director of the 911 Center in North Little Rock Arkansas and a very proud mother and grandmother. She is an amazing resource with a wealth of experience, depth of knowledge and a far-reaching network. She was instrumental in publishing the City’s Emergency Operations Plan and completing a grant that allowed the City to hire a fulltime Emergency Management Specialist. She is also the recipient of the 2009 and 2013 City of Rowlett Volunteer of the Year Award.."
We hope you enjoy this interview of Lee by Councilmember Whitney Lanning.
