Announcement 2016 Citizen of the Year: Jerry Bates, Oncor
Jerry Bates, area manager for Oncor, has been named the Milburn Gravley Citizen of the Year by the Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce. He will accept the award Friday, Feb. 24, at the Metrocrest Chamber’s 48th Annual Awards Luncheon, an event open to the public.
"I couldn’t believe it then, and I still can’t believe it," said Bates, recalling the moment when he was informed by the Metrocrest Chamber that he was being named Citizen of the Year. “I knew Milburn Gravley, for whom the award is named, and I know what a great man he was.  I also know what incredible people all of the ‘Citizen of the Year’ winners are. I am so honored to be among that group -- I’m humbled by it.”
