Chamber “Champion” Award – Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah School District
We simply could not be the chamber we are today without the Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah School District headed by Elkhart Lake alum, resident and superintendent Dr. Ann Buechel Haack. The district is our number one supporter of our chamber cash program that directly supports our community businesses. Their involvement on all levels of different chamber initiatives is consistently strong. The district works hard to not only be a chamber champion but to be a community champion fostering strong partnerships and providing the community countless services. The Thanksgiving Day Luncheon, Veteran’s and Memorial Day programs, Open gyms, open shops, partnering with community businesses with youth apprenticeships, work programs, advisor boards and encouraging the community to come into the school. Being an involved community partner is very important to the district and without the support of the community the District would not be as successful as it and in turn our community and chamber would not be as successful as it is without our great school. Congrats Elkhart Lake -Glenbeulah School District!
