Meet Rockwall County’s ‘Blue Tie Guys’

Meet Rockwall County’s ‘Blue Tie Guys’

ROCKWALL, TX – Nov. 23, 2020 – Blue Tie Guy Ambassadors are friends, leaders, and colleagues in our community who serve as champions for children in Rockwall County by speaking out about child abuse dynamics.

Recently, this group of gentlemen have stepped up to stand in the gap and lend a voice to children who suffer in silence. They include:

Heath City Council member John Beaman, president of The McGraw Council;

Brady Hill at Brady Z. Hill Insurance;

Gary Freedman, aka The Voice of Rockwall;

Bobby Gladu at A&A Granite;

Josh Rangel at Rock On Nutrition;

Larry Parks with American National Bank of Texas;

Shane Hollas with Maaco Collision Repair,

Mike Chouteau with Nissan of Greenville;

Rick Carroll at Inwood National Bank;

and Shawn Stephens at Fair Texas Title.

As you see these Blue Tie Guys out and about in our community, talk to them to learn more about how you might help.
