What is one thing that makes your business great?

There is greatness in smallness! With a total enrollment of 30-35 students we are able to know and understand what is truly important to our students and their families, in addition to individually guiding our students to find what makes them passionate. With fewer students we have the flexibility to use the students’ natural curiosity to make lessons meaningful and therefore more memorable.

Why is Guthrie a great community to be a part of?

Anyone can see that Guthrie is a thriving town with a lot of potential for growth. However, I believe that Guthrie will continue to keep it’s small town feel because it’s citizens support each other. Greatness in smallness!

Why is your company a part of the Chamber?

We feel like the Guthrie Chamber is one of the best ways to let the community know about our business while also supporting other local businesses.

This question 🙂

"I joined the Chamber to help bridge the gap between the business community, the City of Guthrie, organizations, our schools and neighbors because we are all invested. When we work together with the help of the Chamber, we thrive as a community. "
