Gilliland Honored for Leadership

Shelley Gilliland, Senior Loan Administrator of our Lone Star Ag Credit Stephenville Credit Office was recently honored for leadership in her role as President of the Board for BBQ, Bands and Bottle Rockets on the Bosque. This event that took place July 4th at the Stephenville City Park included a BBQ cook off, live music, children's play area, food vendors and non food vendors with the intent of the event being to donate a portion of the proceeds to local non-profit organizations. Approximately 5,000 people attended. Through sponsorships, entry fees and other donations, $10,000 was donated to the spotlight Charity, Backpack Buddies - a non-profit organization with the mission to "help alleviate childhood hunger in Erath County by providing nutritious, child-friendly foods for the weekends." 10 other local non-profit organizations received $800 each with a combined total of $18,000 given to local non-profit organizations.

The City Council recognized the efforts of Shelley and her board by presenting her with a certificate that reads "Certificate of Appreciation, Presented by City of Stephenville to Shelley Gilliland In thanks for your leadership in coordinating the activities for the Fourth of July celebration. We further acknowledge your sacrifice in restoring this treasured, family-oriented day of activities focused on the birth of the United States of America."
