Bob Gunn

Robert D. “Bob” Gunn and his wife Carol were honored jointly as 2012 Wichitan of the Year at the annual Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce and Industry North Texas Economic Forum and Wichitan of the Year luncheon.

The couple has been called the “dynamic duo” for their involvement and devotion to the city of Wichita Falls, serving on numerous community and non-profit boards.

Local media outlets covered the story, and to the surprise of no one who knows them, the Gunns were surprised and humbled upon receiving the award.

“We dearly love this town,” Bob Gunn said. “As time was good to me, I was able to give back.”

Bob Gunn, a past AAPG president and AAPG Honorary member, received the Sidney Powers Memorial Award in 1997 – AAPG’s highest honor – as well as the AAPG Public Service Award in 2004 and the DPA Heritage Award in 2005.

He also is an AAPG Foundation Trustee Associate and recipient of the 2013 L. Austin Weeks Memorial Medal – given in recognition of extraordinary philanthropy and service in advancing the mission of the AAPG Foundation.

Gunn will receive the Weeks Medal during the May 19 opening ceremony at the AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Pittsburgh.
