EADS, CO – The Kiowa County Economic Development Foundation, in conjunction with the Eads Chamber of Commerce, decided to recognize all of Kiowa County’s frontline medical workers, businesses, educators, volunteers and residents for all they did to keep Kiowa County’s people safe and secure during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. In essence, the entire county community was named Citizen/Volunteer/Business of the Year. KCEDF and the Chamber provided these banners to be hung somewhere prominently in each of the county’s incorporated towns including in Eads, Sheridan Lake and Haswell.
