Winona IT Named “Rising Star” By Kosciusko Chamber Of Commerce

Thursday, March 4, 2021

Every year the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce honors businesses and individuals for their contributions to our community. The annual Chamber Awards are a way to highlight the positive impact local leaders have on the continued growth of Kosciusko County.

Specifically, the Rising Star Award (sponsored by Horizon Bank) recognizes high performing local businesses that have been in operation for less than five years. This award celebrates companies that “exceed initial growth targets and financial goals, demonstrate excellent knowledge of their industry competitors and the local market while building a foundation for continued success”.

We are proud and grateful for being awarded the Rising Star Award by the Chamber. Winona IT has always worked hard to partner with community organizations, leaders, and local businesses to succeed.

“Winona IT is truly blessed to live in such a great community. We appreciate the support and recognition by the Chamber. Our focus is on changing the perception of IT support, and we’re already seeing results there in a relatively short period of time. Our mission is to honor God, enrich people’s lives, and empower people to achieve more – and we’re thankful to be able to do so right here in Kosciusko County.”

Michael Pahl, President & Owner, Winona IT
