SHARON WHITEHILL LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Sharon Whitehill is a woman who has done countless things for this community. She is looked up to and admired by many people, and rightfully so. Other than being a supportive and loving mother to her four children, grandmother to nine grandchildren, and a great grandmother for two. Sharon has always been a big part of Nixa since she first moved here in 1985. Sharon began her outreach in Nixa in 1986, when she was hired as the Nixa McDonalds Public Relations Manager when it originally opened. From 1994 through 1997, she was the Mayor of Nixa and accomplished many things in her position. She started Nixa’s first National Night Out her first year, which is still happening today. She also started the community involvement plan called “Imagine Nixa”, expanded the neighborhood watch groups, and created the Nixa Municipal Complex. Sharon became the Nixa Chamber President/CEO in May of 2002 till October 2012 and was responsible for creating and promoting the branding of the chamber and community using the “X”, which is now incorporated in numerous community logos including the City of Nixa. Outside of those jobs, Sharon has been a part of the Public Building Corporation, Community Foundation, Legacy Society, and was named one of Springfield Business Journal Most Influential Women in 2003. In 2008, Sharon won the Nixa Citizen of the Year Award and if there was any question of why she had been the receiver, it was made clear in her speech, “I made a vow many years ago that I would do things because I feel in my heart the thing that I’m involved in will have a positive effect on my family. Now I consider Nixa my family.”. Sharon Whitehill has continuously shown her dedication to the Nixa community and because of that the Nixa Chamber has created the ‘Sharon Whitehill Lifetime Achievement Award’, for their Nixie Awards, to remember the wonderful work Sharon has done for this community and celebrate others who follow in her footsteps of working to make Nixa a better place.
