Howard Dudley named Man of the Year

Howard Dudley did not grow up in Cleburne. In fact, he has only lived in the community for about eight years. However, his contributions to the town and his influence have improved Cleburne and its quality of life.

Past honorees of the Times-Review’s Man of the Year were overwhelmingly in favor of Dudley as the choice for the 2006 award. Nominations for him poured into the Times-Review office before the annual selection process began.

Dudley’s heartfelt desire for the revitalization of downtown Cleburne, support for Hill College and his many other gifts — including $250,000 to Harris Methodist Walls Regional Hospital — are why he is the 2006 Times-Review Man of the Year.

Editor’s note: The following comments were written and submitted by friends, colleagues and past Man of the Year recipients.

Man of the Year

As the first recipient of the Times-Review Man of the Year honor, I strongly recommended Howard Dudley for this award. Of all the various awards and recognitions that exist in Cleburne, I consider the Man and Woman of the Year as the top honor in our community.

I also consider Howard Dudley to be head and shoulders above all other possible candidates to be considered for the 2006 recognition. In fact, I believe Howard would have been a candidate for any of the years since he and Sherry have moved to our community.

His substantial contributions and involvements in the growth of downtown Cleburne, growth and financial support for Hill College Johnson County Campus, financial support of Harris Methodist Walls Regional Hospital go on and on. This list is long and impressive.

I congratulate the Times-Review for sponsoring this honor and especially for nominating Howard Dudley as the 2006 recipient.
