The Belton Area Chamber of Commerce was proud to host this year’s annual Tree Dedication Ceremony on Friday, April 29, at Heritage Park in honor of the two 2015 award recipients.

The Beltonian of the Year for 2015 was Dr. Andy Crowson. Dr. Crowson was introduced by the president of First Texas Bank, Mr. Pat Kaufman.

The Citizen of the Year for 2015 was Mr. Keith Leija. Mr. Leija was introduced by the Executive Director of the Belton Economic Development Corporation, Ms. Cynthia Hernandez.

The clouds held off from raining, the day was very beautiful, and a crowd of about 30 was in attendance. Congratulations to our award winners. It is because of your dedication to service that our Belton community is so strong!
