It was an excellent night of good food, great company, and excellent speakers at the 70th Annual Vernal Chamber of Commerce Meeting on Thursday night at the Uintah Conference Center. The baton of President Michael Fossett will be passed to President elect Signey Smith. Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox spoke to the attendees which was a special treat as he very recently announced his intention to run for Utah Governor 2020.

CIVCO Engineering was named the Service Business of the Year, IFA - Agricultural Business of the Year, Uintah County Golden Age Center - Government Business of the Year, Andeavor - Manufacturing/Industry Business of the Year, and Lowes of Vernal - Retail/Wholesale Business of the Year.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
