Ambassadors work to extend reach of Jackson County Chamber

Written by 

The Ambassadors of Jackson County recently elected new officers: Chairman Tommy Dennison, Business Counselor with the Small Business and Technology Development Center at Western Carolina University; Vice Chairman John Hagdorn of Highlander Self Storage; and Secretary Karen Walston, the Bug Lady of WNC.

Known for their red jackets, the Ambassadors are the outreach and goodwill arm of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.

“While all the Ambassadors work and have their own careers and businesses, they graciously give of their time to assist others in the business community. Our Ambassadors warmly greet new business owners and offer to help in any way they can,” said Julie Spiro, executive director of the Jackson County Chamber.

Other members of the Ambassadors Committee are Carroll Smith from Smith Insurance; Ina Ustich from Smoky Mountain Getaways; Amy Ammons Garza, Catch the Spirit of Appalachia and Fun Things to do in the Mountains; Michele D. Smith, attorney; Dana Smith of Jack the Dipper; Beth Bell of Morris Broadband;  and Sande Hagdorn of Highlander Self Storage.
