LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Community Foundation of West Texas named Linda and George McMahon as it's "Heroes of the Year" for their lifetime of service to Lubbock.

The couple has showed their support for Texas Tech, the Frenship ISD Leadership Foundation, Lubbock Homes for Heroes and numerous other organizations.

George said he's never really thought much about what he was doing, he just knew it was the right thing to do.

 "We're just kind of products of Lubbock and the environment because a lot of people here do good things," George said. "We're not the only ones, it's just something that we all do here in Lubbock. We all love this community. It's a great place to be."

The Community Foundation of West Texas gives more than $1.5 million annually in community grants for projects, scholarships and local nonprofit causes.
