The Matagorda County Economic Development Corporation honored Stuart Lynn with the 2020 Tiger Lane Community Spirit Award on Wednesday evening.

BAY CITY, Texas [Thursday, Dec. 17, 2020] – To say someone embodies community spirit in the same way as the late Tiger Lane is not a characterization made lightly. On Wednesday evening, The Matagorda County Economic Development Corporation honored Stuart Lynn with the 2020 Tiger Lane Community Spirit Award.

Stuart A. Lynn, P.E., Founder and CEO of LynnGroup, received the award during a virtual presentation ceremony broadcast via Facebook Live from the MCEDC office in Bay City Wednesday evening. The award in its second year was presented by its inaugural recipient, Sue Milberger.

“Tiger was an amazing leader and he always put community first,” said Lynn. “It was a privilege to work with him on the MCEDC board. It is an honor to receive an award in his memory. Success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Our team will continue to do what we can to make a difference so that the underdog in all of us can succeed. That is exactly what Tiger would have wanted.”

In her presentation, Sue spelled out why Stuart is deserving of the recognition.

“To have community spirit like Tiger’s you are active, you are positive, you are a visionary and you love Matagorda County and especially your small corner of it,” she said.

She went on to describe Stuart’s involvement in business and various projects in Matagorda County that are making a difference in the community. From the humble beginnings of his first company, to the renovation of a historic landmark building downtown, and his philanthropic efforts at home and abroad – Stuart “is well-known for taking on projects that aren’t just good for business, but they are good for the community above all,” she said.

“[Stuart] has been the one to step up and finish projects that had stalled, taking financial risks, not because it was the best business decision, but because someone needed to believe in the vision our community leaders have for our cities and county,” she added.

The award was created in 2019 to honor the memory of long-time MCEDC Board Member Tiger Lane.

“[Tiger] was a tireless servant to his community of Sargent and a champion of progress in Matagorda County,” said Matagorda County Judge and MCEDC Board President Nate McDonald at the time. “We seek to honor him, his service to our county and his friendship to us on the MCEDC Board of Directors with the newly minted Tiger Lane Community Spirit Award.”
