Congratulations to this year’s award recipients!

This year’s recipients represent a wide variety of industries and give back to our community in many different ways!
You will find their profiles starting on page 9 of this Cascade Business News.
The alumni list of past winners is long and full of incredible people. The list of winners for 2020-2022 can be found on page 15 of this publication, and the lists for previous years’ winners can be found online at I’m sure you will recognize many of the names on the list over the past 16 years of presenting this award.
We received over 30 nominations, and all are worthy of recognition; however, we are not able to award everyone, every year. Those chosen by the committee share a commonality of crushing it in their specific industry and giving back to our Central Oregon community.
After missing an in-person awards party the last two years — for obvious reasons — we are back this evening, October 5, at the Oxford Hotel for a mix and mingle awards party.
Thank you to all of those who nominated! If your nominee wasn’t selected this year, please do so again in 2023. Usually, it comes down to age or community involvement. Feel free to reach out for more clarification.
Thank you, Class of 2022, for all you do for our community and beyond!
