The award recognizes local people that make a difference.
Boulware has been involved with various organizations in the community, but is perhaps best known for sponsoring the Missouri Western Convocation Ceremony since 1993.
The Convocation has hosted many political leaders over the years.
Family Investment Center CEO Dan Danford presented the award to him.
"Each year we try to recognize somebody that has done some really excellent things in the community," Danford said.
The Missouri Western Foundation will also receive a $1,000 contribution from the Danford Family Fund.
