New Beacon Awards nomination deadline Wednesday

The awards banquet sponsored by the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce has a new name and direction.  Formerly called the BIE Awards, which stands for Business, Industry, and Education, the ceremony will now be known as the Beacon Awards.  Algoma Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sara Krouse says the new name identifies with the signature lighthouse in the community. 



A lighthouse award is debuting this year and will go to an outstanding volunteer in the Algoma area.  Other awards, including Business, Education, Employee of the Year and the Rising Star, will be presented at the award ceremony on April 22.  Nominations are due this Wednesday at 6 pm.  You can find information on past award recipients and nominations below.
