Frankfort, Kentucky (I-Newswire) August 26, 2013 - The Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky has honored Earl Reginald Stevenson, with a commission as a Kentucky Colonel "in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to the nation".
Stevenson joined an impressive list of notables who have been commissioned. Being commissioned a Kentucky Colonel is the highest honor bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky upon a private citizen and only the sitting Governor has the power to issue the commission. The honor is conferred upon persons who exhibit exemplary character, leadership, and a dedication to the welfare of others.
The Governor stated, "Each time I have the pleasure of bestowing a membership to this exceptional organization on an individual, the great tradition established by Kentucky's first governor, Isaac Shelby, lives on. The name Kentucky Colonel has become synonymous with strength of character, leadership and dedication to the welfare of others. Just as Isaac Shelby declared his trusted militia members to be his Kentucky Colonels, I see in you those things that place others above self".
Kentucky Colonel is the highest title of honor bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Commissions for Kentucky colonels are given by the Governor and the Secretary of State to individuals in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to a community, state or the nation. The sitting governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky bestows the honor of a colonel's Commission, by issuance of letters patent.
A list of Kentucky Colonels is a Who's Who of outstanding men and women around the world. The certificate, signed by the Governor and the Secretary of State and bearing the Great Seal of Kentucky, has hung on the walls of such distinguished leaders as Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Ronald Reagan, and English Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Certificates are also proudly displayed by great second grade teachers and brave volunteer firemen who have performed in an extraordinary manner.
Stevenson is also a life member of Mensa and a close friend of actor Johnny Depp. He is also a direct descendant of John Stevenson, one of the first settlers at Jamestown, Virginia. Stevenson was recently nominated for The Order of the British Empire to be bestowed by Her Majesty, The Queen. Stevenson is also a well-known friend of the late David Carradine, Jan-Michael Vincent, and former FEMA Director and Undersecretary of Homeland Security Michael D. Brown. Stevenson also holds a coveted Kukkiwon 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo.
