Deadline nears for Business Hall of Fame nominations

(Continued)

DANVILLE —

An appointed panel will review the nominations for the new group and determine who will be inducted into the business hall of fame during a ceremony planned for March 10.

“We’ve had some excellent nominations already, but we would like to have a full deck of people — some younger folks as well as some folks from the past,” said Linda Bolton, director of business development and government relations at Vermilion Advantage.

“There are a lot of great business people in our area, but we especially want to honor the folks who help build the community and give back while also preserving local business history,” she said.

Vermilion Advantage President and CEO Vicki Haugen said, “As with the individuals selected and honored this year, we are seeking nominations of the people who built Vermilion County and continue to help it grow,”

While the business hall of fame is focused on recognizing business people, Haugen said it is their connection to the community that makes them special.

“Many people are successful in business, but the business hall of fame honors those who have gone the extra mile, beyond their business acumen, sharing their time and resources to build and grow Vermilion County,” she said.

Co-sponsors for the 2013 event are Vermilion Advantage, Neuhoff Media and the Commercial-News.
