2021 Achievement Awards

By | News

During our annual Christmas presentation, the Huckabee team took a moment to pause and reflect on the blessings and accomplishments of the past year. This included recognizing our colleagues as part of the 2021 Huckabee Achievement and Service Awards.

“Every day I wake-up feeling blessed to work with incredible people. Each of the individuals we recognized today have made an impact on Huckabee from the moment they stepped through our doors. It’s my pleasure to celebrate their commitment to our mission, clients and the entire Huckabee family.” —Christopher M. Huckabee, Chief Executive Officer

Achievement Awards

Huckabee presents two achievement awards each year: the WHOA Award and the Huckabee Achievement Award.

The WHOA Award is a special distinction that recognizes an individual who “took hold of the reins” and expertly guided the team with wisdom, integrity and spirit. It is presented each year in memory of our friend and colleague, Jerry Hammerlun, who passed away in 2017. This year’s award was presented to Corrie Hood, a Principal in our Fort Worth office. 

The Huckabee Achievement Award recognizes an individual who is characterized by their commitment to excellence and dedication to our clients and to our team. It is the pinnacle recognition that can be achieved at Huckabee. LaShae Baskin, Principal and Director of Austin, was nominated by her peers as this year’s Achievement Award recipient.

Service Awards

Employees are recognized for years of service at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 years and beyond. This year, we had the chance to celebrate 33 Huckabee-ans, in addition to celebrating the retirement of our longest-tenured employee, Mike King, who has impacted education for the last 41 years at Huckabee.
