In March of 2016, the Katy area community lost a beloved leader and community member in Mr. Stan C. Stanley. Stan was known throughout the Katy area for his big heart and volunteerism through numerous organizations such as the Boys Scouts of America, Katy Area Economic Development Council and Katy ISD. To honor his contributions and lasting legacy, the Katy Area EDC created the Stan C. Stanley “Eagle” Leadership and Economic Development Award. 
The annual award recognizes a volunteer in the Katy area who has made contributions in leadership and economic development to the Katy area.  All persons volunteering in the Katy area are eligible for nomination. The award winner will be selected by a committee assembled by the Katy Area EDC based on criteria including but not limited to, years of service, leadership skills demonstrated, special achievements, and qualities Stan so greatly exhibited such as being faithful, conscientious, unselfish and committed to the Katy area community. 
Additionally, a second category recognizes a Katy area elected official. The nominee for this category must have several years serving in a capacity as an elected official with a proven track record of contributing to community development and/or economic development. The nominee must also exhibit faithful, conscientious, unselfish and helpful service with strong leadership skills. 
Both award categories will recognize individuals for contributions within the Katy area. The elected official nominee must be currently elected for all or part of the time period of January 1, 2023, to December 31, 2023. 

Nomination forms can be accessed here. All submissions must be received by Friday, March 29, 2024.  Forms can be submitted via email to sdixon@Katyedc.org or mailed to or dropped off at the Katy Area EDC office, 2002 W. Grand Parkway North, Suite 220, Katy, TX 77449.
