Hood County residents Jerry Leake and Roger Deeds are two of approximately 70 people set to receive the Scottish Rite KCCH (Knight Commander of the Court of Honour) award today in Dallas.
The recipients will receive a traditional Scottish Rite red prayer cap, along with a name badge and pocket jewel.
The ceremony is set for this afternoon at the Dallas Scottish Rite Cathedral.
Sonny Tull, Fort Worth’s Scottish Rite general secretary, said the honor goes to Masons nominated by their peers based on “community service and for service in the organization. It is an honor, but you don’t ask for it. It’s a lot of hard work, actually.”
The voting on the nominees goes through the state level before the final list of honorees is decided by vote at the Scottish Rite headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Deeds, Hood County’s sheriff, is president of the Granbury Scottish Rite Club, part of the Scottish Rite’s Valley of Fort Worth – one of nine such geographic divisions in Texas. Leake is vice president.
