The Chamber’s Virtual Annual Awards were held April 13th via Zoom. The Chamber’s theme, CELEBRATING OUR COVID-19 HEROES, set the stage for five special awards for community members who made a difference during the pandemic of 2020. The Chamber then presented our “regular” annual awards. The special virtual event included live streaming and short videos of all the award recipients.

The Chamber’s Executive Director, Lisa Messinger Wood, and her husband, Chris Wood, President of Davis & Elkins College, were featured as WV Living Magazine’s “Power Partners” in its Spring 2021 edition. Messinger Wood and her husband talk about the relationship between the community, the college, and many other partners who are working to make sure Elkins/Randolph County is a place to live, work, play, and stay.
