The Effingham County Vision 2020 Community Celebration of Excellence Breakfast is being held on Friday, March 31st from 7:30am to 9:00am at the Thelma Keller Convention Center.
Guest speaking at the breakfast is Dr. Rick Workman, DMD. Dr. Workman graduated from the Southern Illinois University of Dental Medicine in 1980. After starting his own office, Dr. Workman worked on creating a dental support-organization that would relieve the burden of management for supported dentists. The organization offered non-clinical support in human resources, accounting, supply and equipment procurement, marketing, and customer support. As the largest dental support organization in the United States, Heartland Dental has support offices, dentists, and team members nationwide. Dr. Workman has not forgotten his roots in the Effingham area. The corporate office for Heartland Dental is in Effingham. Dr. Workman has also donated to many projects/organizations in the area, including the Richard E. Workman Sports & Wellness Center, TREC, Effingham Public Library and the Effingham Performance Center.
The cost to attend the breakfast is $15 per attendee. $5 of each ticket that is sold will go towards the Effingham High School and St Anthony High School Scholarship Fund. Tickets are available at the Effingham County Chamber of Commerce office or online at www.effinghamcountychamber.com.
