Community leaders were honored Sunday night at the Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce’s Citizen’s Award Banquet.

Dave Nelson and Jon Rombach hosted the show, a call back to the days when they worked together at KWVR Radio in Enterprise. Despite the years that have passed, the duo was in top form.

Danny Lawson on piano, Trilby Shirley on drums and Rich Shirley on stand-up bass played before and during dinner — an accompaniment to the beef dinner served by The Red Rooster restaurant.

The well-attended ceremony honored leaders in the community who go above and beyond the call of duty to support business, tourism, arts and culture in Wallowa County.

Adrian Harguess was honored with the Chamber’s President award by Marc Stauffer.


Kenneth, Max and Roberta Moffit received the Leader in Business award from Jim Sackett.

Rod Childers was honored with the Leader in Agriculture by Scott Shear and Todd Nash.

Christine Schwanenberg and son Chris Tsiatsos accepted the Unsung Hero award for Irene Locke Barklow, author and historian, from Doris Woempner.

Ruby Lathrop accepted the Leader in the Arts award for Kelly Wick, owner of Kelly’s Fine Art Gallery.

Elementary teacher Mark Keffer was awarded Leader in Education by Enterprise School Superintendent Brady Royes.

Jenni Word, chief nursing officer for Wallowa Memorial Hospital, was awarded the Employee of the Year award from Dave Harman.

Stacy Green, Wallowa Valley Health District Foundation director, received the Leader in Nonprofits and Events from Dave Harman.
