Over 150 attended the event that was held at the Mansfield Art Center. The awards provided an opportunity to highlight businesses, individuals and organizations that had a significant impact on the growth and development of Richland County.

Nine awards were given in categories including Business Excellence, Economic Impact and Investing in our Future. Recognition was also given to two of the founding members of RCDG, who have moved from Executive Board to Emeritus Status; WMFD'S own, Gog Meisse and Grant Milliron of Milliron Industries.
