Grand Opening - Hampton Inn Huntington, WV - July 19,2013


The grand opening of the Huntington, WV Hampton Inn was one of the highlights of my summer! Sales Manager Laura Kilgore invited me up to participate in the Grand Opening festivities, which included being a distinguised guest at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. It was really great getting to meet Mayor Steve Williams of Huntington, as well as getting to work with Laura and General Manager Bobby Howard. Their wonderful staff really made me feel a part of the team. I was also completely surprised when Marco, the mascot for the Marshall Thundering Herd made an appearance and made me an Honorary Herd Member, complete with Thundering Herd Jersey with my name printed on it!
