Horn and Son Construction of Clarksville, which has partnered with University of the Ozarks on several recent facility projects, will receive the University’s 2022 Community Champion Award.
The award will be presented during the Ozarks Awards Ceremony, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 21, as a part of the University’s Homecoming 2022 ceremonies.
The Community Champion Award was created in 2019 and is given to an individual or company that has worked “cohesively with University of the Ozarks to move the University and community forward together.” The recipient is selected by the University administration.
Horn and Son Construction was established in 2001 by the late Jack Horn and his son, Travis, and is owned today by Travis and Brianna Horn.
The company has partnered with the University on numerous University facility projects, including the strength and conditioning center, renovations of the athletic offices and the current construction of a downtown restaurant and tap room project. The company has also donated numerous hours and equipment to the University on these and other projects.
Horn and Son Construction is also a corporate sponsor in the Aerie Club, the University’s athletic booster club.
“We enjoy our partnership with the University and are proud to be a part of its growth and progress,” Travis Horn said. “The University is a great asset to this community and has had a tremendous impact in both Clarksville and Johnson County in recent years. We’re happy to help in any way we can and we’re truly honored to receive this award.”
Both Travis and Brianna are life-long residents of Lamar. A graduate of Arkansas Tech and a former football standout for the Wonder Boys, Travis serves as president of the Clarksville Rotary Club, is a volunteer firefighter in Johnson County, and previously served on the Lamar School Board. Brianna volunteers with the Lamar athletic program. The Horns have two children, daughter Taylor (16) and son Levi (15).
