Austin Bank Beautification Award
Angelina Beautiful/Clean (AB/C) honored Austin Bank with a Beautification Award. An award presentation took place at their venue located at 2000 S John Reddit Dr, in Lufkin presented by members of the Angelina Beautiful/Clean Board of Directors and the February Beautification sponsor, Gann Medford Real Estate.
The Beautification Award is an environmental award program that recognizes individuals, organizations and businesses that have demonstrated exceptional leadership in protecting or enhancing our local environment. This is in recognition of achievement in helping to beautify the Angelina County area by landscaping, building improvement and other means which enhances the beauty of our Deep East Texas community.
With moving to this location and creating a new building, Austin Bank ensured that the aesthetics were key in keeping with the natural surrounding that makes the area great. The new build includes keeping some of the surround trees as well as adding landscaping around the building to welcome visitors to their establishment.
Per Jennifer La Corte, AB/C Executive Director, “Landscaping and the natural environment is often overlooked when creating new structures but that’s not the case with Austin Bank. They tried to incorporate the beauty of East Texas into their business needs. It’s great for a business to be considering such aspects for the environment but also for the community as a whole to enjoy a welcoming presence.”
