ROCK SPRINGS — Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism recently honored the spring 2019 winners of its R.E.A.C.H. awards.

The quarterly R.E.A.C.H. Awards (Rare and Exceptional Achievement for Customer Service in Hospitability) honor outstanding customer service provided by employees in the local tourism and hospitality industry that celebrate and enhance Sweetwater County’s reputation as a first-class visitor destination. Award winners serve as champions for the tourism industry.

“During the month of May from 2008-2017, the Sweetwater County Travel & Tourism Board recognized outstanding customer service in our local lodging industry through the R.E.A.C.H. Awards Program,” said Jenissa Meredith, Executive Director of the SWCTT. “However, we recognized that the importance of these efforts truly warrants more consistent recognition.”
