Brock family to receive History Makers Award

With three sons in one generation on hand, three generations of one family will be honored Wednesday with the Chattanooga History Center's fifth annual History Makers Award.

The luncheon honoring Bill, Frank and Pat Brock -- and their family -- will be held at The Chattanoogan.

They're being honored "for their family legacy of leadership and service," said Marlene Payne, deputy director of the Chattanooga History Center. "They have been very influential in terms of education, politics and religion."

The award luncheon, a fundraiser for the organization, recognizes local individuals or groups who have made significant contributions to Chattanooga, the region, the state or the country.

Annie Hall, chairwoman of the event, said honoring one generation of Brocks came with a stipulation.

"They're all so humble," she said, they insisted "it's our family legacy, not us."
