Chamber Announces 24th Annual Chamber Choice Honorees
Program to be aired on WBBZ-TV
The Greater East Aurora Chamber of Commerce is again proud to present the annual Chamber’s Choice Awards student recognition. The program is designed to acknowledge and honor students who have demonstrated significant development in a variety of aspects of their learning and growth, such as community service, entrepreneurship, citizenship, artistic excellence, and communications as well as many other diverse areas.
Ten seniors are selected from each of the 4 schools, East Aurora, Holland and Iroquois high schools, and the BOCES W.D. Ormsby Educational Center.
The program provides an opportunity for these students to be recognized for their positive contributions to their schools, communities, and peer groups.
In a non-Covid year the Chamber would typically recognize the students with a banquet dinner with over 200 guests attending including the students, their family members, teachers, school officials and business leaders, and sponsors but this year, with sponsorship support, the Chamber was able to give the students recognition across Western NY with the help of WBBZ-TV, Cable Channel 5, with a 30-minute television show with each student and school having an opportunity to do a brief presentation about themselves.
The program will air 3 times, Wednesday, May 19 – 9 pm and Sunday, May 23 – 10:30 am and 7:30 pm.
Special thanks to the program sponsors – Tops Markets, University Pediatric Dentistry, and Astronics, Inc., and congratulations to our honorees.
