More About The Spirit of Tex Awards
Tex had some sayings he would often repeat and share in both his business and personal endeavors. Some of those were: “Treat everyone the way you’d treat your mama”, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” and “Always be able to say three things: Please, Thank you and Sorry.” Such wisdom was simple, honest and endearing. It led to the success of an on-going automotive business here in Arizona and are also great guidance for fair-play and sportsmanship. For these reasons, RSL AZ is excited to honor our people with the new “Spirit of Tex” awards!
