Community Builder Award

St. Philip's College President Dr. Adena Williams Loston is the recipient of the Community Builder Award from members of the first and oldest Masonic Lodge in San Antonio and in Bexar County---Masonic Lodge No. 44 of The Grand Lodge of Texas Ancient Free and Accepted Masons.

Loston received the award Sept. 23 during a lodge ceremony held in the banquet hall of the San Antonio Scottish Rite Theater at 308 Ave. E in downtown San Antonio. In addition to host lodge Alamo No. 44, masons from such lodges as Triune No. 15, Highland Hills No. 1373, Kelly No. 1131, San Antonio No. 1079, Perfect Union No. 10, Charles W. Anderson No. 1413, Victory No. 1160, Texas No. 8 and Nat M. Washer No. 1270 attended with guests who included Loston's family and SPC employees.

Under the leadership of Loston, current St. Philip’s College students have been the beneficiaries of community engagement in the form of scholarships funded collectively by the masonic community in Texas. The Masonic Lodges Scholarships at St. Philip’s College provide financial assistance for students enrolled in certificate of completion programs in the fields of aircraft maintenance, construction trades, plumbing, welding, transportation services technology and manufacturing technology. Alamo Lodge No. 44 and Triune Lodge No. 15 gave a combined gift of $4,000 in 2015. The following year, Alamo Lodge No. 44, Triune Lodge No. 15, Charles W. Anderson Lodge No. 1413, Highland Hills Lodge No. 1373, Texas Lodge No. 8, Victory Lodge No. 1160, and Kelly Lodge No. 1131, all of San Antonio, gave a combined gift of $10,000 to St. Philip’s College. For details on contributing to the innovative Masonic Lodges Scholarships at St. Philip’s College program, contact Dr. Sharon Crockett-Ray, college Director of Institutional Advancement at 210-486-2887, scrockett-bell@alamo.edu.

Also under the leadership of Loston, ceremonial evidence of masonic participation in two college capital improvement programs that the public is encouraged to see in progress includes plaques installed as part of cornerstone and leveling ceremonies for both the college's Good Samaritan Veterans Outreach and Transition Center at 202 Connelly St. and the college’s Turbon Student Center at 1801 Martin Luther King Dr., both designed by architect Aline Yoldi of Pfluger Associates Architects. The plaque at the 202 Connelly St. location is installed and ready for view, and the plaque at the 1801 Martin Luther King Dr. location is forecast for installation in coming months. Find social media on both ceremonies at the college Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/gospc.

Alamo Lodge No. 44 has the distinction of being the first and oldest Masonic Lodge in the City of San Antonio and in Bexar County. It has a rich and unique history, having been founded in the Alamo. The lodge was granted a charter from the Grand Lodge of Texas on Jan. 15, 1848 and is now honored by a plaque on the south wall of the Long Barrack. Today, there are more than 900 Masonic Lodges in Texas, with a combined statewide membership of over 122,000.

About the Community Builder Award: A national program within the masonic community, The Community Builder Award is many times bestowed upon a man or woman who, year in and year out, quietly and without fanfare, shows their devotion to their community and its people without the expectation of awards or honors. The award program enables the lodge to meaningfully recognize outstanding non-masons who have distinguished themselves through their service to the community, to the local, state or national government, to their house of worship, or to humanity. To that end, the award is presented to individuals who, although they have never been initiated into masonry, have followed the same precepts, ideals and standards that have been established for masonic behavior, according to masonic web sites. The Community Builder Award is many times bestowed upon a man or woman who, year in and year out, quietly and without fanfare, shows their devotion to their community and its people without the expectation of awards or honors.
