Supervisors praise Hughes for his community service
Members of the Board of Supervisors added their praise to Isaac Hughes, who will be honored by the Prince Hall Masons of Virginia during an appreciation banquet on Saturday, Aug. 27.
At the request of Supervisor Cedell Brooks Jr., the board passed a resolution honoring Hughes “for his many years of devoted service to King George County.”
Hughes will be guest of honor at a semiformal event that starts at 6 p.m. at the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center in Central Park. Tickets are $60 each.
“We’re giving it because of his position and his support to the community,” said fellow Mason Stanley Allen.
Hughes was the first African–American member of the King George Board of Supervisors. He served from 1984 to 1988 and later was appointed to the School Board for several terms.
He currently serves on the county’s Economic Development Authority and is chairman of the King George Electoral Board.
Hughes worked as a mathematician at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren for 35 years. He has been active with the Masons and King George Lodge 314. He is a 33rd-degree Mason with Fredericksburg Consistory 346, as well as the right worshipful grand secretary of Virginia.
Hughes, a trustee at Antioch Baptist Church in King George, is married to Anna Hughes. They have three children and three grandchildren.
