The annual Gatesville Chamber of Commerce awards banquet was held on Saturday, Jan. 26, and Gatesville’s Keith and Lisa Steward capped the night with the evening’s pinnacle honor, Citizen (or in this case, Citizens), of the Year.
The award had an element of surprise, as Lisa was under the impression the honor was just being bestowed upon her husband. Instead, friend and presenter Sam Golden revealed the award was actually for them both.
“Keith and Lisa Steward are a husband and wife team that epitomizes service above self,” Golden said. “Both of them are hard working, resourceful leaders of our community.”
The Stewards are both active leaders of First Baptist Church and minister to the military through Operation Stand Down and the Salute to Warrior Citizens. Both are also actively involved with Food for Families and the Boys and Girls Club.
