PLEASANT HILL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ANNOUNCES ANNUAL AWARDS FOR BUSINESS, CITIZEN, AND VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR
PLEASANT HILL, Iowa – The Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce the 2022 winners of Business, Citizen and Volunteer of Year. This year the awards are presented to NuCara Pharmacy as the 2022 Business of the Year, Ric Powell as the 2022 Citizen of the Year, and Scott Fiscus as the 2022 Volunteer of the Year.
NuCara Pharmacy has been a staple of the Pleasant Hill community for 10 years. They are known to go extra lengths to help their customers and stand out from other pharmacies by offering compounding for custom medications and delivery. They also provide regular prescriptions, immunizations and are known as a community pharmacy. They show care, kindness, and support to their patients and are second to none in customer service. The Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce honors NuCara Pharmacy as the 2022 Business of the Year.
“They are a key component not only as a brick-and-mortar storefront, but also as a presence at community events with their outreach,” said Becca Squiers, Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce Executive Director
Ric Powell is a well-known leader in Eastern Polk County. He has dedicated his life to making a positive impact on every community fortunate enough to have him work, coach, or volunteer with them. Pleasant Hill is privileged that he has called our community home for the past 17 years. Powell currently serves as Vice-President of the Southeast Polk School Board and Chair of Good Government for Pleasant Hill. He is an advocate for the community’s growth, safety, and education and expects nothing in return for his hard work. The Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce is delighted to award the 2022 Citizen of the Year Award to Ric Powell.
“Ric is not one who simply talks about civic duty, but humbly shows up to create a community that is better and stronger than the day before,” says Squiers. “In an age when many focus on problems, Ric focuses on the opportunities of the possibilities.”
Scott Fiscus has been active with helping the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce with their events for the past several years. He can usually be found helping with setting up and tearing down one of the events in addition to working it. It is our pleasure to award the 2022 Volunteer of the Year award to Scott Fiscus.
“We love to joke around and say that Scott is one of our ‘voluntold’ volunteers, but he is always willing to help wherever he is needed,” says Squiers.
