A capacity-filled banquet hall, which included members of Luther’s family, and past and present National Tournament Staff, witnessed him receiving the award for Meritorious Service; an award given that he so richly deserved.
Luther, who is also a TNBA Life Member, was honored for Meritorious Service; based on a 43 year history with TNBA, serving in multiple roles for the organization. His passion for bowling led him to join TNBA in 1972; after returning to California following an honorable discharge from the United States Air Force; where he wanted to become more involved with the organization, not just as a bowler. In 1978, a United States Postal Service promotion led Luther to relocate to Denver, Colorado where he actively became involved with the Denver Bowling Senate; serving as its President for twelve years. As a result of his professionalism, service and dedication to TNBA and over the span of 25 years; Luther has served as TNBA Budget Director (2 years), Assistant Western Region Tournament Director (3 years), appointed as acting, then Western Region Tournament Director (18 years); Western Region Rhodman Tournament Director (3 years); then ultimately appointed as TNBA National Director of Tournaments.
Other TNBA accolades include: Board Member of JP & SP (1989), where he served as Vice-Chairman and formed the now Century Club; donating the first $100.00 out of his own pocket; a philanthropic gesture he has continuously donated since 1989, to date. Luther has served as Chairman of TNBA Finance Committee; Chaplin; Parliamentarian, headquarters relocation committee; Cabinet Advisory Committees, Site Regional Inspection Committee and a Southern Regional Tournament staff member.
Luther’s bowling accomplishments include two ‘300’ game awards, ‘299’ game award (twice) and a career high series of 776. He is also proud of a current book average of ‘206’.
Personal accomplishments include his wife and one daughter; a life member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity; member of California State University Alumni Association; a faithful member of Kings Baptist Church; Blacks in Government (BIG); Denver Strikers-Strikettes Bowling Club; National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP) and National Association of Postmasters of the United States (NAPUS). Three years ago, Luther retired from the U.S. Postal Service after 42 years.
