On Sept. 2, at the 2020 Highlands County Tourism Insights Program, Visit Sebring presented seven Winner’s Circle Awards to recognize individuals, teams, businesses and organizations that exceeded expectations and served as tourism ambassadors by going above and beyond their typical, everyday duties during the 2019 calendar year. Through their performance and actions, they created situations that resulted in happy, grateful, surprised and delighted visitors. They are also people who make the operation of our tourism-related businesses better, faster, friendlier, and more efficient so that visiting our area is much more pleasing for our tourists.
