Saline County Republican Committee recognizes individual members for their contribution to the Republican with the annual Paul Breashears Award.
This award was established in 2000 in memory of Paul Breashears, who exemplified one of the many “unsung heroes” of the SCRC. A tireless Republican volunteer, he and his wife Tracy serviced the Arkansas Republican Party in a variety of grassroots efforts and had notable leadership roles in planning some of the most successful Lincoln Day Dinners in Saline County history. Paul served as a Deputy Prosecutor for Saline County until he unexpectedly passed away far too soon from leukemia in the spring of 2000.
Each year the award and the hammer are presented to honor a person who has worked behind the scenes for the Saline County Republican Committee with little or no public recognition. The hammer symbolizes building a strong Republican Party in Saline County.
