The NCTC Foundation established the Ed Wright Community Service Award to recognize individuals, organizations, and/or businesses for meritorious service to the college and/or the community.
The award for Montague County was presented to Bowie’s Nancy Blackmon, who has dedicated her life to education.
She spent more than 24 years helping educate the youth in the community to her own family’s future by ensuring her four grandchildren successfully finished their college careers.
