Recently, I was honored to present Bradley W. Brookshire, the chairman of the Brookshire Grocery Company Board of Directors, with the 2014 Patriots of the Year Award. Out of gratitude for their support in the building of W.T. Brookshire Hall
—the future home of the Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy —we chose to name all 14,000 partners in the BGC organization as the Patriots of the Year. The award was given at a luncheon on April 29, and was immediately followed by a groundbreaking ceremony for Brookshire Hall.
