WCU-Texas Honored with Rising Star of the Year Award

WCU's Rising Star of the Year award,

The West Coast University-Texas campus recently received the Richardson Chamber of Commerce Rising Star of the Year award for 2022. Each year, the organization recognizes local businesses and organizations for “outstanding contributions” to the community.

“For this year’s Richardson Chamber annual awards, we felt a strong need to honor a Rising Star Company, one that is fairly new to town but has already done a stellar job of making great contributions,” said Richardson Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kim Quirk. “Without a doubt, West Coast University has done just that. Aside from hosting several chamber meetings, West Coast has been a major sponsor of many events, a gracious participant in opportunities and Dr. King is a valued member of our board. We are so proud to have them in our community and appreciate all they have done to make a difference.”

Proud to Serve Our Community in Richardson

The Rising Star of the Year award was presented at the Chamber’s annual ceremony by Ken Hutchenrider, President of Methodist Richardson Medical Center, who described WCU-Texas as the “clear winner” in this category.

WCU-Texas Executive Director Dr. Amy King, who accepted the award, said: “We are incredibly honored to be recognized by the Richardson Chamber of Commerce as 2022 was our first full year of operations in Richardson. We aspire to serve as a valued partner in the community, both for philanthropic needs and providing our employer partners with the next generation of healthcare professionals.”

The Richardson Chamber of Commerce is a 5-star accredited chamber that includes more than 400 active members and is placed in the top 1% of chambers of commerce nationally.
