Executive receives lifetime achievement award for encouraging entrepreneurialism 

COCOA, Fla. -- B.W. (Bernie) Simpkins, founder of B.W. Simpkins Oil Co., Cocoa, Fla., was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) at its eight-annual conference last week in Orlando, Fla. The award is given in recognition of a lifetime of entrepreneurial achievement that encompasses the ideals of entrepreneurial activity: education, application and giving back.

Simpkins built B.W. Simpkins Oil from a four-person startup into a $140 million business that transformed from an oil delivery firm into a convenience store empire under the S&S Enterprises Inc. Step Saver convenience store name. In 1989, he sold his businesses and leased his properties to Tulsa, Okla.-based MAPCO Petroleum. Simpkins is currently engaged in residential and commercial real-estate development, according to the Cocoa Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.
