The Chamber recently had a Red Carpet welcome for two Lenoir County residents. The Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber Commerce and the Red Carpet Committee are pleased to welcome Jawad Wahabzada and Rob McGhee to our community.
The Red Carpet Committee loves to prove to our newcomers why Kinston and Lenoir County is a great place to call home.
Jawad Wahabzada is a new teacher at Rochelle Middle School and pictured with Scott Bowen, the Chamber VP of Business and Tourism receiving his gift card package.
Rob McGhee is working for the East Carolina Council Boy Scouts of America. He likes to snow ski, white water rafting and spends time off shore fishing. He is also pictured with Scott Bowen.
Thanks to chamber member sponsoring businesses each eligible newcomer receives a Red Carpet Gift Card package valued at over $1,000 turning new residents into lifetime customers. The program works hand in hand with the Think Lenoir County (TLC) project which supports local shopping and encourages people to relocate here.
If you moved here from outside Lenoir County in 2015 and are interested in the program or just want more information, please contact Laura Lee Sylvester at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252.527.1131.
The Chamber is inviting new member businesses to participate by offering a gift cards to new residents. Please phone the chamber for details.
