Debbie Baker, Simpson Advertising

The President’s Award is presented each year by the current president, to honor an individual for their contributions to the Chamber, which exceed those normally expected of a Board Member or Committee Member.  President Daniel J. McMillan selected Debbie Baker, Simpson Advertising as the recipient of the 2017 President’s Award.

Debbie has been a chamber member for over 30 years. She can often be found at networking events and various committee meetings. In fact she has chaired almost every committee the chamber has, and several that no longer exist. She was the Chamber president in 2004 and still sits on the chamber board.
She also donates your artistic ability to help design brochures, flyers and invitations for many Chamber and YEF events.

When asked why he selected Debbie Baker to present with the President’s Award, he replied, “One of the most incredible parts of being a member of the SFS Chamber is the fact that this Chamber takes the time to mentor new members. There are many people I could have selected but the reason I chose Debbie Baker is because she took the time to be a mentor and a friend, guiding and encouraging me from the moment I joined the Chamber”.

Debbie Baker has been involved at all levels of the SFS Chamber Board, the City and in the Community and has shared her leadership skills, her time and her talents to make the Chamber, City and the Community of SFS a great place to work.

It is an honor to present this year’s President Award to Debbie Baker of Simpson Advertising, Inc.
