Osceola, Iowa’s Paul Mueller Company was honored Tuesday at the annual business and community dinner hosted by Clarke County Development Corporation (CCDC) and Osceola Chamber Main Street. The award recognized Mueller for job creation and retention as well as their long-standing relationship with the city of Osceola, Iowa.
Each year the CCDC board of directors selects a company that has made an impact on the local economy. The Job Creation and Retention Award provides the recipient with a “Thank You” for their hard work and investment, and is awarded during the annual dinner with local businesses and community leaders present. Tuesday’s event saw over 150 in attendance.
As an added appreciation for their commitment to Osceola and Clarke County, the Job Creation and Retention award winners are granted $1,500 to give, in their name, to a non-profit of their choosing. Jim Rawson and the team at Paul Mueller Company chose to donate their award moneys to the local Clarke County FFA organizations from Clarke Community Schools and Murray Schools.
