2018 Ambassador of the Year

The award is given to the Ambassador with the most accumulated points throughout the year. Points can be earned by selling memberships, mentoring members, and attending Chamber events.
Mr. Schwengel and his wife brought their family to Rome in 1992 to finish his college education at Berry College. In 1996, Mr. Schwengel graduated from Berry College with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in Business Administration.
