Special Award Given

Lion Jacob Edwards was recently honored with the prestigious Arkansas Lions Eye Bank and Laboratory Award for his outstanding leadership to both the Lions Club and to his community. Jacob joined the Searcy Lions Club in 2005 and immediately became an active member, especially with regard to the Annual Lions Club Auction. Single-handedly, Jacob replaced a slow, manual process with cutting-edge digital technology, propelling the annual acution into the 21st century with his skill and expertise. It is in large thanks to his efforts that the Searcy Lions Club has been able to raise over $50,000 over the past five years - funds that have all been invested in the eye care of White County residents.

Jacob is a Harding student, and he and his wife Laura live in Searcy. He is the son of Alan and Joy Lynn Edwards. Alan, a 26-year member of the Searcy Lions Club, recently was awarded a lifetime membership. This is a clear example of the importance of role models, and in this case, the example of Alan Edwards has resulted in immeasurable value to our community--both through his many years of dedicated service and to the innovation initiative of his son.
