The Highland Park Masonic Lodge #1150 was pleased to present their annual Community Builder of the Year Award to Frisco resident Chuck Wright for his work in the community and with Veterans. The award presentation was made by Worshipful Master Scott Brosi and Lodge Secretary Mike Biddler at the Haggard Party Barn in Plano Texas before a crowd of approximately 60 friends and Masons.

In addition he is active in the community as a GOP Precinct Chair in Frisco, the Trail to Eagle Counselor for his son's Boy Scout troop but takes the most pride in his role as father and husband. He is a graduate of the Frisco Leadership Program, class XIII and a former Watch Dawg with Purefoy Elementary. In 2015 Chuck was named as a finalist for the American College's Citizen Solider of the Year award and co-founded a Veteran's based radio show in D/FW called Alliance for the Brave. Chuck is the founder and principal with Lone Star Wealth Strategies, a Retirement Income Planning firm, a Certified Financial Planner and a 30 year member of New York Life. He is married to Michelle and they have 2 sons, Mason, an honor graduate of Wakeland High and Travis, who attends Griffin Middle School.
The Highland Park Lodge was founded in 1921 and currently meets at the Scottish Rite Temple, 500 S Haywood Street in Dallas. The Community Builder Award was designed by the Grand Lodge of Texas to enable local Masonic Lodges to recognize outstanding non-Masons who have distinguished themselves through their service to the community, government, church or synagogue or to humanity. It seeks out those men and women who year in and year out quietly and without fanfare show devotion to their community and its people without the expectation of recognition.
