I want to use this opportunity to encourage the citizens in the Sikeston and Miner areas to participate in this year's Annual Award nomination process.
The Chamber sent out the nomination forms in our January SACC newsletter and at our 57th Annual Awards Banquet we will give out the following Awards: Lifetime Achievement, Educator of the Year, SACC Member of the Year, Law Enforcement Officer of the Year, Sikeston Jaycees Distinguished Service Award, Civic Group of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Community Volunteer of the Year, Business of the Year and Citizen of the Year.
Nominations are received from the community and a selection committee of SACC officers, general membership and past recipients choose our winners based on the applications.
This is our opportunity to recognize some of the area's best and we need the public's help in identifying those winners.
The nomination forms are simple to fill out and are available at the SACC offices. The deadline for nominations is Thursday, Feb. 15, 4:30 p.m. If you have any questions about the application process please contact us at 573-471-2498.
SACC would also like to welcome our 2007 Corporate Sponsors: City of Sikeston, Ferguson Medical Group, First State Bank and Trust, Focus Bank, KBXB and KRHW Radio, Manpower Inc., Montgomery Bank, Noranda Aluminum, Rick Leonard Heating and AC, Regions Bank, SEMO Electric Cooperative, Sikeston Public Schools, Steward Steel Inc., and Blanton, Rice, Sidwell, Nickell, Cozean, and Collins LLC.
