This week, the National Corvette Museum (NCM) was recognized for its excellence in hospitality at the Southern Kentucky Hospitality Associations (SKYHA) Star Awards.

The SKYHA, formerly known as the Bowling Green Area Lodging Association, is a regional tourism membership non-profit organization representing all businesses in the hospitality industry in southern Kentucky. SKYHA promotes and protects the interests of the industry by providing beneficial information to its membership, creating a forum for discussing ideas and issues facing the group, facilitating communication and collaboration among members, and better connecting the industry to all of Southern Kentucky.

“The SKY Hospitality awards were all about the people, the-line-level boots on the ground, folks taking care of the visitors to our city. We can’t say thank you enough to the people who do the work. Work that makes the properties and attractions so special to all our guests. This was just the beginning. We have so much more in store for the future,” said Michael Nunn, President of SKYHA.

Two National Corvette Museum staff members received recognition: Debbie Eaton for Best Tourism Professional and Kenneth Jones Jr. as Food and Beverage Star. Both Eaton and Jones received the recognition for their determination to increase guest numbers and experience at the National Corvette Museum during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The NCM has maintained a high standard, since its inception, to focus on exceeding customer expectations. Our teams and our guests get to see Debbie and Kenny exceeding that standard daily and through their work. We are so thankful they are part of the team,” shared Stephanie Morrill, Director of Sales and Guest Operations for the National Corvette Museum.

These awards serve as a showcase for the continued growth of the National Corvette Museum as a leader in hospitality for the Southern Kentucky region, and the NCM is proud to have both Eaton and Jones on the team.
