Langford Sneed receives the Unsung Hero Award from Kathy Higgins, Richardson East Rotary Club president.
Langford Sneed of the Richardson East Rotary Club was given the Unsung Hero Award at the Richardson EDGE Luncheon recently.
Club President Kathy Higgins told the crowd that Sneed joined Richardson East Rotary in 1989, and he has maintained perfect attendance since that time. He has served in countless officer positions for the club including Treasurer, Sergeant-at-Arms, Community Service Chair, Vocational Service Chair, Program Director and International Service on two separate occasions.
"Over the years, he has owned a Hunter Fan Store, a garage door company, and a gift shop, all while continuing his chosen career as a pharmacist," Higgins said. "He takes care of our club members’ medical ailments with his back home remedies and can fix a garage door almost immediately." To quote another Rotarian, Wendall Ritz, “Langford is Superman and the Flash all in one - a Marvel Character.”
Sneed has owned pharmacies in Richardson, worked at several more and continues working as a pharmacist today.
EDGE is the Economic Development, Growth & Expansion initiative of the Richardson Chamber of Commerce. The luncheon is co-sponsored annually by the Chamber and Richardson's three Rotary clubs.
