We here at Matrix Integration are proud to announce that we will be honored at the 2019 Strassenfest! Held in Jasper, Indiana, Strassenfest is a German-inspired street festival, and this year marks its 41st annual celebration. Not only will Matrix Integration have its own float, but Matrix CEO Brenda Stallings will be featured at the start of the parade.
Why are we being honored, you may ask? Well, it all goes back to September of 2018, when Jasper was named the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s “Community of the Year” for 2018, an award given annually to Indiana communities deserving of contributions to their community’s business climate as well as overall image. The person who nominated Jasper was Brenda Stallings, our very own CEO. Brenda has been a leader in Jasper for years, both in business and the overall community. Not only is her entrepreneurship admirable, but her serving on various non-profit boards has made her an example-setter for those in the community.
As a result of her nomination of Jasper (and its subsequent winning) for the award, she has been named the 2019 Hofmarschall. We are proud that our CEO has been given this honor and are proud to announce that Matrix Integration is an official sponsor of the festival. Come and catch Brenda and bask in the spectacle that will be Matrix Integration’s own parade float!
If you live in or near Jasper, Indiana, don’t hesitate to come on down to Strassenfest! It runs from August 1-4 and will have a slew of events: ceremonies, singing, pageants, face-painting, parades, dancing, and more! Oh, and there will be plenty of delicious German food as well. We hope you come down to Jasper Strassenfest, not only because Brenda Stallings and Matrix Integration are being honored, but because it is plenty of fun for all ages! Wir sehen uns dort!
