Longtime Downtown Rockwall volunteer receives Main Street Legacy Award  

ROCKWALL, TX (Jan. 20, 2023) – The Rockwall Main Street Advisory Board has presented longtime Downtown Rockwall business owner and volunteer, Tammy Sharp, with a rare Main Street Legacy Award. Established in 2019, the award recognizes those who contribute to the vibrancy and economy of Downtown Rockwall. In his presentation at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, January 17, Board President, Jeremy Standifer, noted that without question, when people think of Downtown Rockwall, they think of Tammy Sharp.

As the President of the Downtown Rockwall Association, going on her third term, Tammy has gone above and beyond in her dedication, especially to the success of events on the square. For years, she has been a behind the scenes dynamo for high profile events such as Spring Fling, Hometown Christmas, Scare on the Square, Farm to Feast, and the car show for Rib Rub Run and Roll, just to name a few.

The Sharp family has truly planted their roots in Downtown Rockwall. Tammy and her husband, Tim, opened their auto paint business, T&T Color Supply, just off the square in 2008. Their daughter, Ashley, has owned the Rockwall Drug and General Store in Downtown Rockwall for about five years. “I am so honored by this award,” Tammy said. “These events have been a lot of hard work, but seeing Downtown Rockwall thrive has made it all worthwhile.”

Tammy Sharp has selflessly served for more than a decade. The events are a big part of what draws people to Downtown Rockwall and creates a family friendly, small town environment for residents and visitors to shop, dine and enjoy. “We are so fortunate to have Tammy and her passion for Rockwall,” said Mayor Kevin Fowler. “She has contributed, in large part, to the vibrancy of our Historic Downtown District.”
