Several Edmonson Voice staff members were also recognized for their hard work and contributions to the successful news network. Most all nominees and winners gave grateful remarks.
"I'm very proud of this," said Gale Renfro with Mid-State Tile Company as he held his plaque. "The county voted on this and I can't wait to hang this on the wall."
Josh Roney with State Farm said he thought the large turnout for the first year event was promising. "This was a great event and everyone did a great job. Thanks very much for this."
The nominees and their guests enjoyed snacks and refreshments as they networked and fellow-shipped throughout the night.
Editor Darren Doyle was very pleased with the event, especially for the first year. "The whole purpose of this event was to help promote Edmonson County commerce and organizations," he said. "We didn't really know what to expect or if there would even be enough interest. We were amazed at the results. We're already looking at next year, too. If everyone who took interest in this year's contest can share that with someone else, then it will only grow bigger and bigger. When we help each other, we all win."
