Choptank Transport is proud to announce it accepted the “Ambassador of the Year” award this week at the Caroline County Chamber of Commerce 2021 Best in Business Awards dinner.
This year’s venue took on a new twist in keeping with safe-distancing protocols due to the pandemic. Instead of being held at the Preston Fire House as in previous years, it was an outdoor “movie night and dinner” event. Attendees had their choice of three different entrees provided by Tenchi, delivered to their vehicles, and popcorn and snacks were provided by Bubba Bob’s Country Treats.
“The Ambassador Award is an extremely important award because it shows the true spirit of our community! It goes to an individual, or in this case a team, that supports the Chamber and is a testament to the power of human kindness,” said Chamber Director Tracey Snyder. “We are honored to present the Ambassador Award to Choptank Transport. They go above and beyond every day to serve our community!”
Choptank Transport Executive Vice President Steve Covey has been an active member on the Chamber’s board of directors for a decade, as well as a Chamber member for many years. “We are strong supporters of the Caroline County Chamber,” he said.“And we are extremely grateful to be given this award. As John Maxwell would say, ‘A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way,’ and as one of the larger companies in the county, our responsibility as a member is to share our experiences and successes with our fellow business community. The Chamber offers a wonderful environment to do that.”
