STEPHENVILLE – Fort Worth Councilman Jungus Jordan received Tarleton State University’s 2017 Civility with Integrity Legacy Award from President F. Dominic Dottavio at the university’s annual gala Jan. 28.

Legacy Awards recognize individuals and supporters who exhibit Tarleton’s core values—civility, integrity, excellence, leadership, tradition and service. The university president selects recipients.

“A man of honor and impeccable integrity, Councilman Jordan serves his community with grace and distinction,” Dottavio said, quoted in a university news release. “Championing the commercial and residential development along Chisholm Trail Parkway and the construction of our new full-fledged campus in southwest Fort Worth, he is committed to improving quality of life for today’s families and future generations. Because of that commitment, North Texas is guaranteed a bright, prosperous future.”

“I am honored by the fact that I’m recognized for dealing with people in a civil and transparent way,” Jordan said. “I was raised to love my neighbor and deal with all with respect and humility.”

Jordan was first elected to city council in June 2005, representing District 6 in the far south and southwest portions of Fort Worth. He serves on the Texas A&M Transportation Institute Advisory Council and the Regional Transportation Council of the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
