Well-deserved Congratulations to Barb Chapman and the relatives of Carl F. Schmidt for their 2022 selection and induction into the Wheatland Community Hall of Fame. Both of these individuals have made profound contributions helping to preserve the Town of Wheatland’s rich history. Barb, in her role as Town Historian, a volunteer supporting the Wheatland Historical Association and other endeavors has demonstrated extraordinary dedication for the sharing and promoting Wheatland Town history within the Wheatland Community and beyond. These individuals have helped keep Wheatland Town history alive for generations to come.
In addition, congratulations to the following people who were selected as 2022 Volunteers of Distinction supporting the Wheatland Community:
The Wheatland Community Hall of Fame was founded in 2018 and as of 2022 is governed by the Greater Wheatland Area Chamber of Commerce, is supported by a volunteer Committee and is funded by a combination of donations and sponsorships. The purpose of the Wheatland Community Hall of Fame is to facilitate a community wide tradition of identifying, recognizing and celebrating deserving citizens and supporters who contribute to the general benefit of the Wheatland Community. The Wheatland Community Hall of Fame has been made possible through the efforts and diligence of a “Salute to Excellence Committee” for collecting nominations, evaluating candidate qualifications and recommending selections for the Wheatland Community Hall of Fame. The recommended selections are reviewed and approved by the Greater Wheatland Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. There are two levels of citizen and supporter recognition defined within the context of the Wheatland Community Hall of Fame:
Induction as a member of the Hall of Fame
Selection as a “Volunteer of Distinction”
Induction as a member in the Wheatland Community Hall of Fame recognizes and honors Wheatland’s most outstanding citizens and supporters who have made significant, positive, notable and/or lifetime contributions to Wheatland in the areas of community, education, recreation, civil and social services. See the Wheatland Community Hall of Fame Honor Roll to read more about the members.
Volunteer of Distinction recognition celebrates those individuals, who freely give their time, effort and talent to a community need, cause or organization without compensation while making positive contributions through demonstrated excellence in support of the Wheatland Community. See the Volunteers of Distinction Honor Roll.
The “Salute to Excellence Committee” would like to thank all those who submitted nominations in 2022 and past years for candidates to be considered for these recognitions. Note that all nominations are retained, updated and reconsidered in subsequent years. In addition, a significant thank you is offered to Mark Turner as the President and CEO of Vanguard Website Solutions, for donating this year’s Wheatland Community Hall of Fame plaques that will be displayed in the Wheatland Municipal Building.
Be sure to submit nominations in 2023 for those deserving individuals supporting your local organizations and/or the broader community.
