On April 27th we celebrated the many accomplishments of our extraordinary High School Seniors that have been a part of our T.A.L.L. Leadership Academy for 2020-2021 school year. The graduation ceremony included our President and Executive Committee, Students, Parents, their Principals and Counselors, as well as the many Business Partners that participated in mentoring our students. Each student received a $1,500 scholarship and was presented with a gift from the Mayor. This year our students were able to attend workshops, take field trips touring different manufacturing facilities, Zoom with Mayor Sandy Stimpson, and tour the Court House to learn more about our local judicial system. Thank you to the many Partners who were strategic in planning this year’s events, and who donated their time and finances to make this year a success.
Deadline is May 28, 2021 for registration submission.
Thank you to our TALL students for all of your work this year. We congratulate you and offer best wishes for a successful future in whatever avenue you pursue!

Students and family were welcomed to the Chamber for a celebration of accomplishment on May 21st. Our Executive Board was present and awarded each of our seven T.A.L.L students with a $1500.00 scholarship from the Chamber Foundation for participation and excellence during the 2019-2020 Academic School year. This is our 7th year with the T.A.L.L. program and we are extremely proud of these students and the impact this program is having!
Consider making a donation to the Chamber Foundation on behalf of this program. We would love to continue to see growth in the scholarship amount as well as the value it brings to the students who are selected to participate!
