Distinguished Service Award
The Distinguished Service Award was created in 1988 and awarded to Jack McCracken that same year.
The award is based on contribution to community welfare and betterment; participation in all-around community activities and civic enterprises; evidence of lasting contributions to community welfare; evidence of leadership ability; success in vocation; personal and business progress and cooperation with individuals and organizations.
The award is presented during the chamber’s Annual Membership Banquet and is the highlight of the evening’s events.
On occasion, an individual leaves this life too soon, and the chamber feels compelled to recognize that individual after the are gone. In these instances, a Posthumous Distinguished Service Award is presented to the family of that individual.
Special Distinguished Service Awards are also bestowed for special achievements.
