Southwest Grain Receives Hettinger Chamber Award
Southwest Grain in Hettinger has been a staple in the community for many years, and their dedication to the area was shown this past fall when a group of four employees volunteered to finish the baseball dugout project at the Erling Dahl Sports Complex on the north side of Hettinger.
For their dedication and hard work, the Hettinger Chamber of Commerce has
recognized them as the Outstanding Quarterly Business.
Chamber President Aaron Roseland said that they are always looking for a local
business that makes a concerted effort to help the community.
“We look for a business that goes above and beyond to serve the community,”
The project was made possible by a program offered by Southwest Grain’s corporate
office called CHS Days of Service. The program gives the individual branches the
opportunity to utilize a small portion of company time to go out in the community and
complete a service project.
Suzie Reuther, Location Manager in Hettinger with Southwest Grain, previously told
the Record that “they have these eight hours to be used as volunteer hours, and they
have to be used to improve the community or help out in the community.”
On Oct. 21, Jared Lewton, Terry Lein, Shane Timm and Shawn Meador went out to the park and put the tin roofs on both dugouts.
Southwest Grain was recognized with a framed award certificate from the Hettinger Chamber of Commerce.
Previous award winners include the Pastime and Suzie’s Woodfire Grill.
