Port of Tacoma Commissioner Connie Bacon was executive director of the World Trade Center Tacoma when it established the prestigious Globe Awards 20 years ago – and now she’s been given one.

At a recent meeting of the WTC Tacoma board of directors, Bacon was surprised to receive only the second Globe Award for Lifetime Achievement .. .

“Connie Bacon richly deserves this award,” said Hugh Carr, WTC Tacoma chairman. “She’s shown real trade leadership as a port commissioner, as a special assistant to Gov. Booth Gardner and, from 1992 to 1997, as executive director of the WTC Tacoma. … There is no one more appropriate to receive this award than the person who first started it.”

The 20th Annual Globe Awards banquet and ceremony is slated for Sept. 19.Congratulations Connie!
