KILLEEN, Texas (Sep. 16, 2021) – The Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce honored Officer Kyle Moore with their inaugural “Community Hero” award at their 89th annual Membership Banquet at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center on Sept. 15.

The award is presented for outstanding community servanthood and is dedicated to an individual who displays exceptional heroism and selfless service in the Central Texas area. 

According to the Chamber, a Community Hero has great empathy and compassion for others and offers aid, even in the face of adversity or personal danger because they genuinely care about the well-being and safety of others.

Officer Moore coordinates and runs the police department’s Homeless Outreach team. It’s an effort that helps fill the gap between the homeless community and police and build relationships. Police Chief Chuck Kimble started the program in 2018, which promotes trying to mitigate issues with that community before it turns into a criminal matter. Moore has lead the program since then and it includes a block party, which brings together community partners that provide much-needed resources and supplies for the homeless community.

“This recognition was a surprise and truly an honor,” Moore said. “I’m happy to be able to help this section of the community and get as many people involved as possible to support and spread awareness.”

The Killeen Chamber also honored KPD’s Officer Angela Mathews with the 2022 Young Professional of the Year award. The Chamber says the recipient of this award exhibits dedication and service toward the Greater Killeen Young Professionals and is an example of the qualities the organization stands for. Officer Mathews was attending an FBI National Academy for Women in Leadership conference out of town, so Chief Kimble received the award in her place.

The Killeen Chamber’s event is our area’s most prestigious gathering of the business community and an opportunity to celebrate their members.

Guests included chamber members, business executives, and Fort Hood, government, and community VIPs. Other recognitions and awards included the Nonprofit of the Year and the Small/Large Business of the Year.
