In recognizing Logan, NaVOBA President Chris Hale said, “Gordon’s story of overcoming adversity, learning from his failures and persisting personifies how the U.S. military prepares our service men and women for success as entrepreneurs. His focus on serving not only his customers, but also his employees and franchisees is why Sport Clips is a household name today.”
