Creative Awards, located in Fredericksburg, Texas, is owned by Wayne and Sherry Rode. Wayne is a native of Fredericksburg, while Sherry was raised in nearby Llano, Texas. Both graduated from Tarleton State University, and then moved back to Fredericksburg to raise their children. They purchased Creative Awards in 1992.
As a former Ag Teacher and with his rural upbringing, Wayne’s background equipped him to design and market awards and gift items for a predominately agriculturally-based clientele. He quickly built a customer base which has included hundreds of 4-H and FFA chapters, as well as countless jackpot shows, county shows and major junior livestock shows throughout Texas.
While this customer base is still a very vital part of the company’s ever-growing business, Creative Awards has greatly expanded to serve customers within a wide range of industries across the United States and Canada.
The headquarters in Fredericksburg includes a full showroom, production facility and business office - all of which are run by Wayne and Sherry. Creative Awards employs outstanding individuals with a variety of skill sets from production to management, and some staff members’ tenure exceeds 15 years. The Rode's remain very involved in local philanthropy, and Creative Awards actively supports many youth programs and agricultural events in Texas and beyond.
