The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce rocks! Executive director Andi Hake holds the Student Welcoming Committee's traveling trophy: "This Business Rocks." The chamber won the award for August for all their help in developing the program and working as the liaison between local businesses and Lincoln College, Heartland Community College and Lincoln Christian University students. The traveling trophy will be awarded each month to the business that students vote as their favorite business to patronize. The traveling trophy is sponsored by Lincoln Daily News.

Pictured with Hake, holding the trophy: on left, Michelle Bauer from Lincoln College and on right, Keith Snyder from Lincoln Christian University.
