Raytown Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year recipients are nominated by community members and business owners. In order to be eligible for Business of the Year award, businesses must have more than 26 full-time employees and be a member in good standing of the Raytown Chamber. Consideration is not only based on growth of the business but especially the business’s commitment to the Raytown Community.

Superintendent Dr. Allan Markley said, “This award reflects the work we do to offer a safe and productive workplace and run a quality school district. Everyone in the Raytown School District contributes to the education of our students and preparing them for their futures. Our students and staff make valuable contributions every day to the community and we are so proud to have been nominated and to receive this award.”

President of the Raytown Chamber of Commerce Vicki Turnbow shared her well wishes for the district, “As a graduate of the Raytown School District and President of the Raytown Chamber, it is an honor to be part of an organization that recognizes the achievements from the businesses within our community.  All the businesses within the school district boundaries, should be proud of the Raytown School District and all of their accomplishments not only in 2016 but always,” Turnbow said. “A successful school district means the community will continue to thrive and our children will receive a quality education.  Congratulations to Dr. Allan Markley, school administration, teachers, and students – you deserve this award.”
