CREATIVE DIRECTOR Bruce Sons
In addition to all of December’s holiday fanfare, we also enjoy looking back with you at the year that was. Once again, we’ve doled out a heaping portion of 2018’s more memorable moments for you to enjoy. This year, Olivia Bennett Teeuws and Riley Dodge graced our respective February and August covers. I believe I speak for many when I recognize how special it is to watch these Southlake teens come back to their hometown roots and our pages. Maybe 20 years from now we will meet up again with Finnegan McDevitt (our April cover), and he will blow our minds with his accomplishments and 27-year-old charm? It’s clear to me, regardless of age, there is no shortage of people who dare to impact this great community. From PTO parents and elected officials to every administrator and booster in between, there lies a steadfast spirit of bettering the place we call home. Long ago, Southlake Style made a pledge to honor those most diligent in their desire and actions towards this aim. Through our first Community Impact Award in 2009, we recognized the visionary Southlake Town Square developer Brian Stebbins. Aptly re-named for its tenth iteration, this month we proudly bestow the Brian R. Stebbins Award for enduring community impact to Traci Bernard. As the President of Texas Health Southlake and as a longstanding community leader embracing many causes, Traci’s impact has been immeasurable.
