Testimonials

Richard L. “Ike” Stage – Mayor, City of Grove City

“I am proud to be one of the founding members of the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce, and have enjoyed watching it grow into a full-service partner to our area businesses over the last 35 years. Many Chamber of Commerce organizations throughout Ohio are struggling to retain members in this tough economy, and ours continues to grow. This growth is a result of an organization that provides significant and measurable benefits to its members.”

Dr. Bill Wise- Superintendent, South-Western City Schools

“The relationship between schools and businesses has become more significant as 21st Century skills are incorporated into everyday curriculum to meet the needs of a global workforce.  Schools cannot do it alone.  Businesses play a key role in helping students realize that the knowledge and skills they acquire can and do apply to real world applications. The Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce helps strengthen the relationship between businesses and schools to ensure students receive the training they need to become valued employees.”

Lenee Pezzano- President, Harrison College in Grove City

“As Campus President of Harrison College’s Grove City campus, I am very proud of our relationship with the Grove City Chamber of Commerce because our missions align. The Chamber is an essential advocate for local businesses, and Harrison aims to educate the community to help these businesses grow. Harrison is focused on equipping students with the needed skills and relationships necessary to fill local employment needs. Through our community partnerships and collaboration with Grove City businesses, we work to ensure that our programs are strategically aligned with the needs of the community so our graduates leave with an education that will benefit not only their lives but the lives of those around them.”

Scott McComb- CEO, President, Corporate Heartland Bank

“The Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce helped me start my original business in 1989 by providing me with a great forum to meet new people, get involved in community service and mature as a young entrepreneur by associating with very seasoned professionals. The Chamber also functions as a “voice of business” in the Grove City Area by fostering great relationships with the Township, City and Southwest City Schools. An investment in the Chamber is a sound one, and remember; you get out of it what you put into it.”

Brian Mitchell- Grove City Family Dentistry

“A good friend and fellow member once compared her involvement with the Chamber to a gym membership. Just signing up for a gym doesn’t get you in great shape; you need to actively go to the gym for it to make a difference. That comparison has always stuck with me. The more I’ve gotten involved the more I’ve benefitted from membership: meeting new people, learning from shared business and life experience and engaging in civic government in a tangible way. As part of the Chamber Foundation, it’s been a privilege to “pay it forward” by providing scholarships for Chamber members, their families and many of the talented young students in the area.”

Les Bostic- Ph. D., Founder, The Buckeye Ranch, Past City Administrator

“It is with both personal gratitude and pride that I have the opportunity to pay tribute to the outstanding leadership of the officers, directors and members of the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce.  Through the gift of your time, talent and dedication, the Chamber, in partnership with the City of Grove City, businesses, schools, library, churches and nonprofits, will continue to play a key role in shaping the future of Grove City as a top tier, highly visible and most attractive community in which to live, work and raise a family.”

 

Sean McKibben- President, Mount Carmel West

““Mount Carmel greatly values our relationships with the Chamber, the City and our local fire and EMS partners. We wouldn’t be able to provide Grove City residents with the exceptional, patient-centered care we aspire to and they deserve without strong community partnerships like these. And we’ll depend on them even more as we expand our Grove City campus to include the community’s first full-service hospital in the years to come.”
