(Clyde Shields, outstanding citizen)….Shields was awarded the Branding Iron Award Thursday.
The award was presented during the Brawley Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Dinner. The Dinner was held at the Stockman’s Club. The Branding Iron Award is presented to an outstanding citizen of Brawley every year. The tradition began in 1976. As usual, the recipient was completely surprised when his name was called. Shields owns an Entomologist Service, with a long history of being very active in his community, performing public service and volunteer work for many years.
