Members of Neosho’s Economic Development Industrial Appreciation Committee honored Willis & Associates as their October Employer of the Month. Representative Bill Reibioldt presented the Willis family with a proclamation; also in attendance were Newton County Commissioners Jack Sanders and Jerry Black who presented a proclamation from Newton County. Willis & Associates has been doing business in Neosho for 50 years. When Frances and Robert Willis started their printing company in 1962 When asked what his favorite thing about doing business in Neosho, Rob Willis was hard pressed to find a single answer. “The People, the small town feel, this is home for us” Rob added. “The small town feeling that you get, most people we know. Sometimes my wife will ask ‘do you know everybody?’ everybody is a neighbor, you know?” Frances Willis added, “We have 8 children, and Neosho is the best place to raise them”. Willis & Associates is no stranger to adversity either, having their home and business destroyed in the May 10, 2008 tornado. Since then the Willis’s have built back and are proudly serving the Neosho area’s printing, promotional material, and graphic design needs. Please join the Chamber in congratulating Willis & Associates Printing, our October Employer of the Month.
