Lindenwood to be Recognized for Job Creation

Lindenwood University will be recognized for job creation—particularly as it is related to its new School of Nursing and Allied Health-- at the 26th Annual Excellence in Community Awards Banquet hosted by civic group Progress 64 West, at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27, at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton in Chesterfield.

This year’s banquet theme is “Saluting Job Creators,” and Missouri Governor Jay Nixon will give the keynote address. Nixon will also receive an award for the new Missouri Works business incentive.

Other 2013 honorees include the Lindenwood Board Member John Hammond, the State of Missouri, Air Evac Lifeteam, the Monarch-Chesterfield Levee District, the St. Charles County Association of Realtors, St. Charles Community College, and Ed Hassinger of the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Around 300 to 400 regional business and civic leaders attend this event, which is always held the day before Thanksgiving.
