Backroad Atlas, Atchison Community Health Clinic and Harvest Video were each recognized this week as part of Kansas Department of Commerce Business Appreciation Month.
Backroad Atlas was one of seven regional winners statewide in the Retail category, while Atchison Community Health Clinic and Harvest Video earned Merit Award recognition along with 71 other businesses and organizations throughout the state.
The Kansas Department of Commerce’s Business Appreciation Month program has been in place since 1995 and serves as a statewide tribute to Kansas businesses for their contributions to the state. Individuals and organizations are invited to nominate businesses that contribute jobs and support their local communities.
Businesses were nominated in one of four categories: Service, Retail, Manufacturing/Distribution, Hospital/Non-Profit.
One winner in each category is chosen from each of the seven designated regions of the state by a panel of judges from the business and economic development community.
“It is always nice to see greater recognition for organizations that we know play a key role locally,” Atchison Assistant City Manager Justin Pregont said. “Atchison has so much to offer, anyway we can spread the word is appreciated.”
