The awards presentation was the climax of Friday night's 111th Annual Banquet for the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce at the Pillars Event Center.
Named as the 2018 "Boss of the Year" was Sue Passo, who is manager at the Christian County Mental Health Clinic.
The 2018 "Volunteer of the Year" was long time Taylorville alderman Earl Walters.
And, the winner of the 2018 "Citizen of the Year" was Taylorville C-P-A Bob Steiner, for his decades of work on many local non-profit boards as well as being a former Taylorville alderman.
Guest speaker was Desiree Becker with GSI/AGCO, who challenged those in attendance to support a program called "PRIME" which establishes vocational programs in high schools around the country. Becker said GSI/AGCO is sponsoring the program locally, in hopes of getting skilled workers right out of high school for their Taylorville facility.
Over 100 people attended Friday's night's Greater Taylorville Chamber Annual Banquet.
