The Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce held its annual awards banquet Thursday at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center. The evening honors the people and companies that have made Fairfield and the surrounding area a great place to live. The event is also a graduation ceremony of sorts for the participants of Leadership Fairfield, an eight-month program in which members hear from expert presenters, panels of community leaders and take behind-the-scene tours of Fairfield businesses. This year’s graduates are, from left, front row: Warren Schaefer, Kathy Winkelman, Jessica Anderson, Genia Ollom, Wanda Bagby, Afton Pedrick and Maryam Naraghi; back row: Barb Jeffrey, Amanda Woodin, Michelle Hudson, Ellora Hans-Price, Colby Deao, Jared Lyle and Katie Hammes.
