I am honored to serve as the Winnsboro-Franklin Parish Chamber of Commerce President for 2017. Our mission statement at the Chamber is “We Mean Business!”, and supporting local businesses is truly our number one priority.
Shopping locally benefits our businesses, our schools, our neighbors, our civic organizations, our government services, our friends and our families. These are not companies run by strangers, faceless corporate entities…these are our neighbors, our friends, the people we see at church and at the ballpark.
I have lived in Franklin Parish since 2000, and returned here after college to work and raise my family. The fact that I’m raising children here is one of my main motivations in making sure that Winnsboro and Franklin Parish remains a vital and thriving community. I am grateful to our community and especially our Winnsboro-Franklin Parish Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for all of the support and hard work that goes in to our mission.
