Stephen Brooks, CEO and President of Grand Homes, Inc., was honored with the prestigious 2012 Hugh Prather Award, the highest honor bestowed by the Dallas Builders Association.
The award has been presented for the past 60 years to the builder, remodeler or developer member who has done the most for the betterment of his community, as well as being a good citizen who has worked to help others.
This award is named for the Homebuilders Association’s first President, Hugh Prather, in hopes that his principles would serve as a guide for future generations of builders. It is not to be simply a “Builder of the Year,” but something more that reflects credit to the building industry. Past recipients include outstanding individuals such as Dave Fox, W. W. Caruth, Jr., Robert Folsom, Fred Roach, Kent Conine, Hershel Pierce, Kenny Marchant, Tommy Ford and Harold Pollman, among others. This group of thoughtful individuals believed that not only was it natural to try to be successful in your business and deliver the best possible product to your customers, but to also go beyond the expected and try in special ways to better the lot of his fellow man.
