The Barriere and District Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business of the Year Award has been presented to Insight Tire and Auto, owned by Scott and Rhonda Kershaw.
The presentation was made during the Chamber’s 8th Annual Silent Auction event held in the Fall Fair Hall on Feb. 16.
Insight Tire and Auto has been in business in Barriere since July of 2003. They have 11 employees at their Barriere location, and four at their new Clearwater location. They support numerous community organizations and events, and Scott Kershaw is currently serving as president of the Barriere Chamber.
The Business of the Year awards presentation is supported by Community Futures/North Thompson, and Dr. Terry Lake, MLA Kamloops-North Thompson.
Members of the community are invited each year to send in their nomination to the Chamber on why they feel the business, or business person, should be considered for the award. Judging is based on the reasons given and quality of the nomination, not the quantity. Only one nomination per person is permitted.
