Norman Brinker Honored With 2009 Methodist Health System Folsom Leadership Award
Date:6/11/2009

DALLAS, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Methodist Health System Foundation mourns the recent loss of Norman Brinker. Methodist was privileged to present Mr. Brinker with the 2009 Robert S. Folsom Leadership Award on May 15, 2009. The evening was a celebration not only of Mr. Brinker's business and sports accomplishments, but also his leadership and commitment to the Dallas community and his friendship to Methodist Health System.

"We are grateful for Norman Brinker's friendship, and it was an honor for us to highlight his leadership and accomplishments among so many friends as he received this prestigious award," said Methodist Health System Foundation President and CEO April Box Chamberlain.

Established in 2005, the award recognizes individuals whose demonstrated commitment and excellence in community leadership emulates the achievements of former Dallas Mayor Robert S. Folsom. Past Folsom Leadership Award recipients include Robert S. Folsom (2005), Nancy Ann Hunt (2006), Troy Aikman (2007) and Laura Bush (2008).

H. Ross Perot, Sr., event chair, served as Master of Ceremonies for the award dinner. Perot said, "The Folsom Award has an impressive list of honorees, including Nancy Ann Hunt, who is here tonight. She's hard to follow, but now my good friend Norman has joined this list."

With that, Perot invited Brinker to receive his award, but the guest of honor couldn't be found. At that point, motorcycles roared through the ballroom, and Brinker rode in on a motorcycle with his friends from Strokers of Dallas. Perot exclaimed, "He makes quite an entrance!"

All eyes turned to the video screen for a moving video tribute, generously underwritten by Nancy Ann and Ray Hunt. Ruth Altshuler, Linda Custard, Margaret Folsom, Steve Folsom, Ebby Halliday, Lou Neeb, Robert Payne, Cindy Brinker Simmons and John Titus provided words and stories honoring Norman Brinker. Reverend Don Benton gave
