The Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber recognized efforts of local businesses that give back to the community at a breakfast on Thursday.
Two top honors are given out each year at the breakfast at Mr. Anthony’s.
Jimmie Bruce, president of Eastern Gateway Community College, was honored with the Spirit of the Valley award.
WKBN/WYTV President and General Manager David Coy received the Spirit of the Chamber award.
“Dave has really stepped up over the years, especially recently with our Jobs Now initiative, and when we reached out to Dave a few years ago to see if he would be willing to help promote that through WKBN, he didn’t hesitate to step and say yes,” said Kim Calvert, vice president of marketing and events at the regional chamber.
Chamber President James Dignan gave an update on economic developments in the Mahoning Valley and what is to come in the rest of the year.
