Ware has also served on the board nominating committee, safety awards review committee and BX golf committee. He received the BX President’s Award in 1994 and the BX Gold Coat Award in 2009 for membership recruitment.

In addition to his BX involvement, Ware is very active in the community, having served as a member or volunteer for many local charities and organizations.

Ware was selected to receive the Cornerstone Award by the BX board of directors, based on an initial review by the BX Cornerstone Award review committee. The recipient is chosen based on the following achievements: BX Involvement, Industry Involvement, Industry Impact, Community Involvement and Years of Service to the Industry.

The Cornerstone Award will officially be presented to Ware during the 126th BX Annual Meeting on Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
