GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
Members of the San Angelo community were recognized for being members of the 2019 20 Under 40 San Angelo class at the McNease Convention Center in San Angelo, Texas, Dec. 6.
20 Under 40 San Angelo is a program created to recognize 20 people under the age of 40 that are influential members of the city.
“We have people from all walks of life,” said Chief Master Sgt. Lavor Kirkpatrick, Goodfellow Air Force Base 17th Training Wing command chief and keynote speaker for the event. “Doctors and school teachers and professors, and I am excited about it.”
Out of all possible nominees, only 20 were chosen and honored for their success and leadership qualities. Among those 20 were doctors, teachers, business owners, and our very own Capt. Jonathan Shour, one of the 17th Training Wing Chaplains.
Shour was chosen for his ability to connect the base and his church to the community around it. His efforts made a lasting connection between the Goodfellow AFB Chapel, local churches and businesses.
Kirkpatrick spoke to the nominees about what it means to be a leader. He reminded them that to be the greatest they must first call themselves the greatest, then strive to live up to their claim.
Each nominee was awarded a plaque and an interview of each was played for the audience.
