Ten businesses and non-profit organizations were recognized in May of 2022 at a Garnett City Commission Meeting for the contributions they make to the well-being of our community, including jobs, added amenities, community involvement, sponsorship of various activities, economic impact and more. Each of these entities were recognized on the state level back in April. The awards were to be presented in 2021 but were delayed due to Covid-19. 
  The Kansas Department of Commerce invited 178 nominees to attend regional award banquets to be recognized. All ten of the businesses and organizations nominated in Garnett and Anderson County were honored at the Southeast Kansas Regional to The Stars – Celebrating Kansas Business Awards Banquet on April 20th in Parsons where Lieutenant Governor and Commerce Secretary David Toland presented the awards. The City of Garnett nominated six business and organizations for these honors. The Garnett Area Chamber of Commerce also nominated three businesses, and an employee of Goppert State Service Bank also nominated an award winner. Here are highlights of the nominations: Kansas Business Awards.
