Lowry Mays
Former President Bush will present the 2007 McLane Leadership in Business Award to businessman-philanthropist Lowry Mays on Oct. 30 during a special dinner.

Mays is chairman of Clear Channel Communications, and the Texas A&M Mays Business School is named for him. He also has served as chairman of the Texas A&M Board of Regents.

The McLane Award for Leadership in Business recognizes a prominent individual in the field of business for outstanding contributions in the area of business, public service or community service at the national level.

The award spotlights the different roles that business plays in maintaining the nation’s economic, political and social vitality. The aim is to also educate our youth and the general public about corporate citizenship and to instill a dedication to public service.

The award is presented as part of the McLane Leadership in Business Program sponsored by the Bryan-College Station Chamber of Commerce and the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation.

Compass Bank is underwriting this year’s award ceremony.
