2022 Emerging Leader Awarded to Trenton Ruxlow

2022 Emerging Leader Awarded to Trenton Ruxlow

The McPherson Chamber was excited to introduce a new award to recognize a local emerging leader.  The criteria indicated that the individual must be a current member of the McPherson Chamber of Commerce and have been with their current company for a minimum of one year, be an up-and-coming business and community leader…a rising star who is inspiring others! The individual whose professional success is matched by their commitment to serving our community, and the individual demonstrates excellence, creativity, and initiative in their business or profession.

Deciding on a single candidate was REALLY tough because we had so many terrific and deserving nominees, which is great in many aspects. Not only are there many impressive emerging leaders in our community, but it was great to know that others are noticing these rising stars and taking the time to nominate them. We look forward to recognizing many more Emerging Leaders in future years.

It was our privilege to present the 2022 Emerging Leader Award to Trenton Ruxlow during the McPherson Chamber of Commerce annual meeting on October 18th. Let us share a little about Trenton Ruxlow.
