Entrepreneurship Awards

Businesses are split into four categories; for-profit business, for-profit small business, start-up business, and not-for-profit business.

"We've got more and more small businesses represented here, as you can see, and they're creating jobs and that's what I'm all about," said Congressman Hal Rogers.

"Just last week I had the privilege around the district of announcing a total of over three hundred new jobs, creating mainly by people like this in their community," he continued.

The four award winners were Community Medical Services of Columbia, Kentucky, London's Body of Stone Fitness, Kentucky Entrepreneurial Coaches Institute, and Wright Concrete and Construction of Dorton, Kentucky.

"It's a great honor, we greatly appreciate it. We've been here for, this makes our third year. It was an honor to be nominated all three years and its an honor to be recognized for your hard work," said award winners Shannon Wright and Kendall Wright.

The brothers say building the business from the ground up presents it own challenges, but encourage the younger generations of entrepreneurs to chase their dreams.

"I think we do strive on the day to day stresses and you kind of have to in the business. Just dream big."

5th District Congressman Hal Rogers was the guest speaker and helped present the awards to the winners.
