The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce presented Chapel Hill Mayor Pam Hemminger with the Public Private Partnership Award on Feb. 1. 

Reagan Greene Pruitt, the 2018 chamber board chair, said the award is meant to recognize community service that builds bridges between the community’s public and private sectors.

"This year’s award is presented to an elected official with a clear vision for the future," said a press release from the Town of Chapel Hill. "A champion for small business with commercial development chops, and one of the hardest working elected officials we can remember.” 

According to the press release, Hemminger is an accessible leader. 

The “clear vision for the future” that Greene Pruitt referred to includes Hemminger's relationship with businesses and environmental and community initiatives.
