Jordan Chrispin Earns President's Award
Each year the Killingworth Chamber presents a deserving student with the President's Award, consisting of $1,000 toward college tuition. The student is chosen based on well-rounded academic achievement and involvement with our great community through community service. HK Senior Jordan Chrispin was the 2016 recipient, having earned it through his continuous pursuit of improving his academic resume and his many community service hours. Jordan also contributed to several HK Clubs, including SADD, Peer Advocates, and the Student Advisory Committee. As he pursues a career in business, we wish him all the best in his college experience and future endeavors.
As I presented this award to Jordan at the Senior Awards Night on June 1st, I thought how one day I hope to be in the audience when our son, who is entering kindergarten in the fall, might hopefully accept an award. As I watched students receive awards from all the great organizations, foundations, and charities presenting that night, I understood how lucky we are to have good schools in our region. The amount of academic achievement, community involvement, and all around school spirit made me feel proud and excited to see what the future holds for our younger generation in town. Every student that night is a proven leader and bound to succeed in whatever path they chose.
Congratulations and best of luck to all the HK graduates!
Hello Killingworth residents and businesses! As we enter the summer months, there are many things going on in the community to keep you busy. Please be sure to visit the Parmelee Farm Market on Saturday, July 9th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Some of our local members participate and offer their locally made farm produce, baked goods, locally made products such as Lavender Pond Far, etc. We will also have our second Summer Concert Series on July 10th from 3 to 5 p.m. This is a Chamber sponsored event and we welcome all to attend.
At this time next year, the Town of Killingworth will be celebrating its 350th Anniversary. A committee has been commissioned by the town to help organize many of the events and activities to commemorate and celebrate this historic birthday. The Chamber is proud to be a part of this event and will be partnering with the committee to help with the commemoration booklet. I advise local businesses to take this opportunity to advertise and help support the events that will take place next year.
June was a busy month for the Chamber. We held a Business After Hours at Premier Stone Products with the assistance of La Foresta and we presented the Killingworth Chamber of Commerce's annual President's Award to an HK graduating student. We wish all the HK graduating students the best in the future.
Happy 4th of July to all!
