No doubt it has been a tough year for businesses all around our nation and region, but many of them are making a comeback and working to get back to normal.

The Bossier Chamber of Commerce has honored many of the top business and community leaders during their annual meeting.

2020 Business of the Year

Brookshire Grocery Company gets this honor for "their commitment to provide for the community during the pandemic, their commitment to take care of their employee partners during such a critical time and for their commitment to the community through scholarships at local colleges and universities and their 10-year naming rights commitment to the Brookshire Grocery Arena in South Bossier."

This year there was a tie for business of the year. So there was also another winner.

2020 Business of the Year

This top award goes to Bossier Parish Schools for "their response to the COVID-19 pandemic - feeding students, pivoting to facilitate virtual instruction and finding a
way to reopen schools safely."

2020 Business Person of the Year

The winner this year is Joe Arnold, CEO of Carter Credit Union. Arnold gets this prestigious honor for "helping Carter achieve a 115 percent growth in the last six years and leading the bank to distribute more than $100 million in Paycheck Protection Program loans."

Other awards were also handed out to LSU Health Shreveport with the Regional Impact Award and Mayor Lo Walker was honored with a service award for his dedication to serve his country and city.
