Since this is such an unprecedented time, we decided to give this award to a second person.
Kallie Cooper is the Executive Director of the Wellington Main Streets Program. In normal times she would serve and focus on businesses in the Main Streets’ Service area and not the entire Wellington Area as our Chamber does. But in these special times, she has partnered with the Chamber and specifically Mary McCaffery to serve all the people and businesses in the Greater Wellington Area. She and Mary have become the go-to people to find information about Covid Resources made available by our town, county, state, and country. These programs have changed almost daily at times, and you can find the most current information available on the Wellington Main Streets Program website. Kallie is passionate about helping people and businesses, and she has an incredible set of skills and truly works for the best outcome for a given person or situation. Our Chamber is fortunate to have Kallie and the Wellington Main Streets Program as our partners. She is so worthy of this recognition.
These are exceptional times, and these are two exceptional women. We were so lucky to have them guide us through a year like no other. Thank you both, Mary and Kallie, for the gift of your energy, skills, and leadership. 2021 will be so much better and easier because of you and the work you do.
