It was an emotional night for one family when their patriarch was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his selfless contributions to this community. “He has impacted me more than he will ever take credit for and more than I can ever describe,” Joe Lee Kirgan IV said about his grandfather.

Joe Lee Kirgan, Jr. took home this prestigious award from last week's Chamber of Commerce Banquet for his work in journalism and various other roles in the community.

“He doesn't speak of his accomplishments or contributions, which goes to show how selfless and humble he is,” said Kirgan's grandson.

Kirgan, who owned and operated The Fairfield Recorder from 1960-1985, said he was totally shocked and humbled. “No way I expected it,” said Kirgan in a phone interview. “I am very proud and didn't feel like I deserved it.”
