Mrs. Gagnier created the inaugural Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce Pitch Competition, awarding $5,000 in grants to Chino Valley Unified students to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. 

Currently, she is assisting the Chamber of Commerce on a series of workshops to promote entrepreneurships in the Chino Valley.

Ms. Arcega earned her award for her “effort to be a catalyst for business growth, a convener of leaders and influencers, and a champion for a stronger community,” said Chamber President Zeb Welborn.
