AB/C Wins 10th Governor's Award

Angelina Beautiful/Clean has once again won the Governor's Community Achievement Award for outstanding community improvement.

This is the 10th time Lufkin has won this award.

Lufkin was chosen for its accomplishments in community leadership and coordination, education, public awareness, litter prevention and cleanup. Also, in the areas of illegal dumping enforcement, beautification and property improvement, and solid waste management.

Krista Cloonan, AB/C executive director, said, "This certainly isn't one organization's award, this is everyone in Lufkin. This is all of the volunteers, the businesses, the civic leaders, all of the groups that got together and helped."

Lufkin will get a $95,000 prize from the Texas Department of Transportation. That money will be used to complete a landscaping project on a state highway in Lufkin.
