The Jenks Chamber of Commerce Co-Ambassadors of 2019’s first quarter are Spencer Groden and Mitchell Sims.

Ambassadors are the Chamber’s volunteers who attend ribbon cuttings and assist with Chamber programs. Ambassadors are awarded points for their service.

The top point-getter is named Ambassador of the Quarter. Groden and Sims tied for first.

Spencer Groden, an AFLAC agent, is a Jenks Public Schools lifer and a fifth generation Tulsa. His grandfather owned Groden Racing Rods and his father, Dr. Steve Groden, was a successful chiropractor.

Mitchell Sims is the president of Nesso Companies and founder of PigTracks, a midstream software. He has worked in oil and gas for nine years.

Sims has his Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification. He says being a Chamber member provides him with the opportunity to expand his business network and to be active in the community.

“Through initiatives like EMERGE (the Chamber’s young professional program), Leadership Jenks and the Ambassador program, I have made new connections that have enhanced my professional growth,” Sims said.

Groden said being an Ambassador has allowed him to come “full circle.”

“Growing up in Jenks, I asked a lot of this community,” Groden said. “As a Chamber Ambassador, I get to give back to the community in a meaningful and lasting way.”

The Jenks Chamber congratulates Groden and Sims for their accomplishment and thanks them, as well as all Ambassadors, for their volunteer service.
