Chamber Recognizes Metro Rotarians
On June 18, the Columbia Chamber of Commerce held its Annual Awards Banquet at the Hilton Garden Inn Conference Center. Leaders were recognized for their contributions during the past year, and officers for the upcoming year were introduced. Metro Rotary was well represented during the evening.
Congratulations to Metro Rotarian Susan Hart for receiving the 2014 Debin Benish Outstanding Businesswoman Award! This award is presented annually to a woman who exhibits leadership in supporting small business, has a record of volunteering in the community, is a mentor to other business women and owns (or is employed by) a Chamber member business, preferably a Women’s Network member. We are fortunate to have Susan as a member of our club!
Also, congratulations are due Jan Beckett. Jan was recognized as the recipient of the 2014 George & Nadine Trial Ambassador of the Year Award! The Ambassadors serve as the “Welcoming Arm” of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce. They consist of a group of over 100 selected business leaders that conduct complimentary groundbreaking or ribbon cutting ceremonies for any business opening, expanding or moving to a new location. Congratulations, Jan!
We are honored to have these two individuals as part of Metro Rotary. They define “Service Above Self!”
