Fort Worth: Councilmember Jungus Jordan named Community Builder of the Year
Tabernacle Masonic Lodge of Woodway will honor Fort Worth City Councilmember Jungus Jordan (District 6) as Community Builder of the Year on March 1.
“Our decision to recognize Councilman Jordan with this year’s Community Builder Award was based on the totality of his service. To name everything he has done, in our opinion, would fill pages,” said Steve Kaneaster, past master of Tabernacle Masonic Lodge No. 1195. “His years of serving our great country as a member of the U.S. Air Force, his service to the citizens of Fort Worth and District 6 and the volunteer and philanthropic work he has performed encompasses those ideals of Masonry. But more than that, for all the service contributions he has made and for all that he will do, Jungus is considered a good friend to all he serves.”
In 1991, the Grand Lodge of Texas adopted a resolution to create the Community Builder Award. The award recognizes non-Masons who have distinguished themselves through service to their community, to local, state or national government, to their church or synagogue or to humanity. Although recipients are not Masons, the individuals represent the precepts, ideals and standards that have been established for Masonic behavior.
In the past, Tabernacle Masonic Lodge has recognized Mayor Bob Bolen; Buddy Calzada with Fort Worth Metro and now a Fort Worth police officer; Gary Randle with HOPE Farm; and FWPD Officer Travis Chromaster, among others.
