MARK AGNEW of Agnew Signs Co. was surprised with the Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce (SRCC) Chairman’s Award on Tuesday, Jan. 15. The Chairman’s Award is presented to an individual, business or organization that demonstrates a longstanding commitment to the mission of the SRCC. The Chairman’s Award is selected at the discretion of the chairman of the SRCC Board of Directors, Kevin Maurer.
Chairman Maurer stated, “Mark Agnew is a leader in the sign business in the mid-Michigan area. In 2018, he made a significant business investment to renovate the former ARC Shiawassee building at 1905 W. M-21 in Owosso, more than doubling his business workspace. Mark also led the effort to resurrect the Cruise the Pits event in July 2017. He assembled the committee, donated countless hours of his services and in 2018 raised over $13,300 for the Child Advocacy Center of Shiawassee County. Agnew Sign Co. strives to be a good community partner by giving back often and continuously supporting local schools.”
