Chamber Names Citizen of the Year
According to Chamber members, Nelson keeps a low profile in the community, quietly going about helping others. He and his wife, Letha, raised two sons who each graduated from Lexington High School in 1994 and 1997. They settled in a home on Avenue G shortly after they moved here before moving just off FM 1624.
Nelson retired from TU Electric (now Luminant) in 2007 and spends some of his leisure time enjoying Eagle baseball games.
Members of the committee who chose Nelson for this award said, “Lockett Wayne Nelson is a genuinely nice and friendly person who is always smiling and always positive. He doesn’t know a stranger, always greeting people whether he knows them or not. Lockett is a good example of what a good citizen should be like.”
