Levelland Main Street Manager, Tania Moody, was thrilled to make the cut and is excited about next steps, “I was sitting in a Main Street Workshop in Laramie, WY, on transformational strategies and my apple watch buzzed. It was an email notification from TDA that we were a finalist for a President’s Award. I was SO excited!” In her second year as Main Street Manager for Levelland, Moody is on pins and needles for November’s announcement. Meanwhile, she’ll be pounding the pavement and your inboxes and phones asking for your vote for People’s Choice. “The TDA Award is out of my hands at this point, so it’s a waiting game, but for people’s choice, my goal is to use this as an opportunity to further market the incredible things we have in downtown Levelland and at the same time try and secure the coveted People’s Choice Award for the 2022 Best Public Improvement.”
The Downtowner of the Year and recipient of the Susan H. Campbell Award for Professional Excellent, along with the winners in each category will be announced at the Award’s Gala on November 2nd.
