The Jacksboro Chamber of Commerce has an eye out to catch businesses and their employees in the act of providing fantastic service to the community and its visitors.

With its new Spotlight on Business program, the Chamber seeks to recognize people and organizations that display the city’s greatest attributes.

Chamber Executive Director Charlotte Haston said the idea was born out of discussion among committee members about shopping local.

“We’re trying to recognize what our businesses have to offer,” Haston said. “We think customer service is an important part of business and we feel like our local businesses are taken for granted.”

Those people who offer excellent customer service, that go above and beyond in their duties, are recognized with a pin or a button that says, “I make Jacksboro better.”

The employee’s photo, along with the reason for nomination are then posted to the Chamber’s Facebook page.

So far they include several City of Jacksboro employees and volunteers who helped out with the recent clean-up day, Bank of Jacksboro’s Clint Myrick, First National Bank’s Kim Romines, Jacksboro Newspaper’s Valerie Rivera and more.
