The Perry County Chamber of Commerce Community Recognition Awards

The Perry County Chamber of Commerce began the Community Recognition Awards in 2011 to be a feature in our Chambers Annual Banquet. The awards serve to honor and recognize the people, organizations and businesses that make Perry County such a wonderful place to live. The awards included Man of the Year, Woman of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Educator of the Year, Public Servant of the Year, Student of the Year, Student Athlete of the Year and The Star of Excellence for Business or Organization. Since then, we have split the Star of Excellence into two separate awards; one for Business and one for Organization. We also began honoring the Perry County Veteran of the Year, as chosen by the Perry County Veterans, in 2014.
