Meet Lucy Figueroa
April 2020, Citizen Spotlight
The Benson Visitor Center was chosen as the Benson Chamber of Commerce Spotlight Business for the month of April 2020. The Chamber receives many phone accolades for the Visitor Center but, as of late, many visitors sang the praise of "a young woman named Lucy". This caused us to look more closely at the Visitor Center for this award. Customer service and community service is high on the list of items to be considered when awarding The Business Spotlight.
Bob Nilson, Tourism Supervisor for the City of Benson, had this to say about Lucy. "Lucy Figueroa started work at the City of Benson Visitor Center on September 13th 2019. She has many skills that fit well into our daily operations. She has very good customer service skills and is good communicating with visitors and finding what they are looking for. She also has a very artistic side and helps with decorating the center for the different seasons and holidays. On top of that she is knowledgeable about Benson’s and also Cochise County’s rich history. She is also able to answer questions about local attractions and businesses. She learns quickly and continues to be a valuable part of our Visitor Center team." Lucy, thank you for being the epitome of Customer Service. Congratulations Benson Visitor Center on your win.
June 2019, Spotlight Business of the Month
Darrin Workman's business, TWI LLC, has been placed in the business spotlight for June 2019. Darrin's story is truly a success story and an inspiration for those who are interested in starting their own business. At the completion of Darrin's welding classes at Pima College, Tombstone Welding was born in 2004. A one-man operation, Darrin worked a daytime job as an onsite welder for a local sand and gravel company while working nights and weekends to see his dream to fruition. Four years later, his dream now involved industrial services and steel construction. It was at this point that he was advised to change from sole proprietor to an LLC. In 2009, Tombstone Welding became TWI LLC and went a step further in 2014 and found it's new home in Benson. TWI LLC continues to broaden it's focus of operation in the mining and power generating industries. Further expanding into the agricultural and oil and gas industries in Oklahoma and Texas, TWI is unstoppable. If welding is your passion, TWI, LLC just may be the answer.
Elton and Pam have a love for Benson that cannot be overlooked.
Walking down an alley they noticed a lot of trash strewn about. The two of them removed all of the unsightly refuse.
They noticed that after it was cleaned the alley stayed that way. They decided, "Why not get the community involved and clean up Benson one street at a time."
This one act of pride in their town led to the grass roots effort, Brightening the Path - Changing the Face of Benson.
We focus on the greatest good for our community and our local businesses.
