Banker Michael Duckworth, the new chairman of the League City Chamber, has been a part of the Bay Area Houston fabric for many years – three decades, in fact.
Originally from the tiny town of Nocona in far northeast Texas, the University of North Texas graduate moved to the Clear Lake area in 1983 and has played a key role in business and civic affairs ever since.
Now senior vice president of HomeTown Bank in League City, Duckworth is also a graduate of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking and has spent the past 30 years in the Clear Lake banking arena.
Besides his work with the League City Chamber, he is active in the Clear Lake Area Chamber and Space Center Rotary. Over the years he has served on the board of directors of the Ed White Memorial Youth Center, Clear Creek Education Foundation and Communities in Schools-Bay Area.
He and his wife, Barbara, have five children and nine grandchildren.
