West Pasco Chamber hands out awards


West Pasco Chamber hands out awards

A captain in the Sheriff's Office, a heart surgeon and a Rotary Club were among those honored Friday by the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce.

The Outstanding Public Servant Award went to Pasco sheriff's Capt. Edward Beckman, for his role in evacuating a tent of inmates at the Land O'Lakes jail just before a predawn tornado destroyed it in December.

The Outstanding Citizen Award went to Dr. Rao Musunuru, who started Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point's Heart Institute and has also been involved in numerous organizations.

Trinity Rotary Club was named Outstanding Service Club, and Youth & Family Alternatives won the Outstanding Area Youth Organization Award.

Others recognized included Publix manager Brian Singletary, who won the Outstanding Community Service Award, and lawyer Steve Booth, who received the Eminent Pioneer Acknowledgement Award.

The chamber gives out the awards each year at its banquet.
