Central Bank recognizes Ron and Kris Hughes for selfless service at Spring Lake

r By Diana MathisrCentral Bank has selected Ron and Kris Hughes to receive the Central Bank Good Citizen Award for the positive impact they’ve had in the community. Brian Hulet, manager of Central Bank’s Payson office, presented the award to the couple on Aug. 18.r

Ron and Kris Hughes have lived in Spring Lake for the last 27 years. Five years ago, after learning of a waterfowl food shortage at the lake, the couple began taking grain to the lake to feed the hungry birds. Feeding the waterfowl has remained part of their routine ever since, but that’s not all they do to preserve beautiful Spring Lake. The couple also routinely maintain the grounds around the lake by picking up trash at the public park.


“We didn’t know all that the Hughes were voluntarily taking care of at Spring Lake until our coworker, Vickie Braun, read about it in The Payson Chronicle this spring, but we knew instantly we wanted to recognize them for it,” said Hulet. “The Hughes have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to keeping Spring Lake clean and hospitable for all creatures and we find the level of selflessness exhibited by them to be rare and remarkable.”


The Central Bank Good Citizen Award is awarded quarterly to members of the community who are making a difference without recognition. If you know someone deserving of recognition for their service and community involvement, contact Michael Hardy at 801-655-2138 with details.
