“It is a great honor to receive this award. The fact that my work and impact in the community is being recognized is very meaningful to me. I have been doing things for the community since I was a child. My family – my parents and grandmother – got me involved at an early age in activities serving those who had a challenge making ends meet. They taught me that I can affect change by getting involved helping others. Texas State is a university that develops a lot of entrepreneurs and people who give back. I observed that as a student and that reinforced my desire to continue giving back. Today, my wife Pam and I are continuing that tradition with our children and we also have incorporated our culture of giving into the business”, said Mitchell Ward, Chairman and CEO at MW Logistics.
