Shirley Taylor Director, Le Mars Public Library  Boss of the Quarter
Nominated by Library Staff On behalf of the City of Le Mars Public Library employees and staff, we would like to nominate Library Director Shirley Taylor as the Le Mars Area Chamber of Commerce 2nd Quarter Boss of the Quarter. Shirley has shown outstanding devotion to promoting the excellent Library services in the City of Le Mars.  Since she first stepped into the role of Library Director in June 2014 Shirley saw a need to transform the Library into a place that would provide more user-friendly spaces for adults, teens and children of all ages. Shirley has proven her leadership skills during the Library’s renovation by her ability to bring the team together and overcoming all obstacles along the way.  Her determination to “never give up” has been an encouragement to all of us and a testament to her character and dedication to this building. We would like to thank Shirley for being a great boss to work for.  It is with both appreciation and pride that the staff of the Le Mars Library nominate Shirley Taylor as the Le Mars Area Chamber of Commerce 2018 2nd Quarter Boss of the Quarter.    (Photo courtesy Le Mars Daily Sentinel)       
Nominated by Hotopp’s Jewelry & Gifts Staff On behalf of the staff of Hotopp’s Jewelry & Gifts we would like to nominate Robin Grosenheider as the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce 2nd Quarter Boss of the Quarter. Robin is the kind of Boss everyone dreams of having.  She is kind, caring and compassionate to all of us as employees, and to every customer that comes into the store.  She is what we all strive to be.  We look up to her for guidance in the store, and even for personal matters outside of the store. Robin is always there for us and considers our feelings and our well-being every day.  She treats all of us not only as her trusted employees, but as her close friends as well.  This treatment is much appreciated by all. For 40 years this Spring Robin and Dave Grosenheider have owned Hotopp’s Jewelry and Gifts.  What a great way to honor a wonderful lady who has put so much commitment into a great LeMars downtown business! It is with both appreciation and pride that the staff of Hotopp’s Jewelry and Gifts nominates Robin Grosenheider as the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce 2018 2nd Quarter Boss of the Quarter.
