During the Connecting Leaders Conference, IBAT also honored Steve Scurlock, IBAT’s Director of Government Relations, with the association’s 2022 esteemed Trailblazer Award.
“A trailblazer comes along and creates a path for others to follow. He or she makes it easier for others to find their way and get to their destination successfully,” said Christopher Williston, President and CEO of IBAT. “Perhaps the greatest thing I can say about Steve Scurlock, is that every path he blazes on behalf of Texas community bankers, is a path blazed with communication, respect, dignity and relationship.”
The Trailblazer Award provides special recognition to those who are especially supportive of the independent community banking industry. Nominees must support and exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit of Texas, and exhibit the courage and independent spirit of Texas community bankers.
