The 2022 Annual Awards Luncheon

Main Street Murfreesboro celebrated our 37th anniversary on February 15, 2022 at Murfreesboro’s ‘The Walnut House’ located one block off the historic Square.  We want to tell you about a very special highlight.

Main Street Murfreesboro created the Doug Young Downtown Leadership Award in 2017 in honor of the leadership and civic service of Doug Young to honor those who give back to the downtown through Main Street, government and civic service.

The Doug Young Award recipient is a high honor indicative of one who has achieved significant respect and success in fulfilling their civic duty as well as one who personifies the highest standard of service toward others, leadership and integrity.

The Doug Young Downtown Leadership Award was given to Bill Shacklett.  A downtown businessman and City Councilman, Bill Shacklett (owner of Shacklett’s Photography) received this high honor from Main Street Murfreesboro for his work on multiple nonprofit boards, city government, and community leadership.

“Councilman Bill Shacklett has significantly contributed to shaping the historical DNA of the downtown community throughout his professional career.  His gentle and thoughtful demeanor is both magnetic and contagious.”
