US LBM, a leading distributor of specialty building materials in the United States, has named Aaron Cox, Retail Manager at the company’s Higginbotham Brothers division in North Texas, as its 2024 Humanitarian Award Recipient for his outstanding community involvement and charitable work. As part of this recognition, the US LBM Foundation has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Midlothian Independent School District (MISD) Education Foundation on behalf of Cox.

Cox’s volunteerism spans a wide range of causes, including helping to organize community events, fundraisers, and drives and working with several organizations in the Midlothian area, including Meals on Wheels and the Miracle League of Ellis County, which affords special needs individuals the opportunity to play baseball. Cox also serves on the Board of Directors for the Midlothian Economic Development Corporation and as an Ambassador for the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce.

When asked about his involvement in the community, Cox stated, “I want to give those in my community more opportunities and experiences. It’s very rewarding to know that I can be a part of someone’s success.” Cox believes in giving back because it is simply the right thing to do.
