“I have lived in Wichita for 20 years, and I am always more proud of this city and its productive, generous people after attending Honors Night.”
Mary Beth Jarvis, Wichita Festivals, Inc.
Wichita has many outstanding people and organizations. The Chamber’s Honors Night recognizes some of our community’s finest, following a tradition started more than 50 years ago.
Honors Night celebrates an outstanding individual, three exemplary corporate citizens, exceptional commitment to the community, and a striking architectural achievement. All of the honors have special meaning because each contributes to the greater well-being of our community.
On this special night, the business community gathers to say "thank you" to our honorees, who are indeed worthy. In recognition of this fact, their names will be enshrined on the "Wall of Honor" in the Chamber building, forming another stitch in the historic fabric of the Wichita area.
