Attorney Hunter Mullens, left, President of the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce, presented the Chamber Directors Special Award to Cheri Sturm, Mayor of the City of Belington. 

The award, in the form of an engraved Alderwood plaque, recognizes Sturm for her outstanding service to the community during the past year.

“Cheri goes above and beyond to improve her local community,” confirmed Mullens, quoting one of several nominations of the Mayor for the award.  Another said, “Cheri has been a light in Barbour County for many years.  She spearheads community events and is an inspirational leader of others.  She stepped out of her comfort zone to make a better place for us all.”
