The award was one of eight handed out during Saturday evening’s ceremonies.

Also honored were the Chamber Ambassadors of the Year, with that honor presented to Vicki Jones, Pauline Lee, and Phyllis Walton.

The Excellence in Leadership Award, which recognizes a graduate of the Leadership Atchison County program, was earned by Daris Calhoon, while two Entrepreneur of the Year awards were presented. That honor, which recognizes a Chamber member who has achieved success in business and also shown creativity and a spirit of innovation and community involvement went to Chris and Kim Taylor, along with Melinda Pregont.

The Organization of the Year award was given to recent newcomer, the Atchison Area Community Foundation. Among the achievements recognized by the organization, which began last year, was its strong growth in supporting all non-profits, with 13 funds in place, along with assets over $260,000.

The Tourism Award, given to a business or individual whose contributions have stimulated local tourism, was presented to Presley Busenbarrick.
