Tampa bay Florida: Lawyer Steve Booth, cardiologist Rao Musunuru and Publix store manager Brian Singletary earned some of the top honors during the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce's annual banquet.
Rao Musunuru was given the Outstanding Citizen Award for his efforts to build up the heart institute at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. The hospital had only 50 beds when Musunuru moved to Hudson 27 years ago. The cardiologist has won three national awards in the past five years from the American Heart Association. He serves on the local boards of Pasco-Hernando Community College, the heart association and Community Aging and Retirement Services, among others.
