Meet the Guest 

This week Michelle Terry, former Vice Chairman/Community & Tourism Development for the Destin Chamber of Commerce, joins us on the microphone. Michelle was recently awarded the James D. Neilson Sr. Award for Volunteer Service from the Destin Chamber for spearheading two new committees in our community this year – the tourism committee and “Ladies Who Launch”. 

Cliff Notes 

Michelle shares that the reasoning for starting these initiatives was simply because a hole was noticed in the community and the Chamber felt that it was their responsibility to fill the void. When asked why she was compelled to help out with these two new projects, Michelle said, “If there is a need that you can fulfill, and you have the resources, gifts and talents to help, you are obligated to do it.” We love this outlook and couldn’t agree more!
