Chairman Jack Conway honors speaker Peter Forman at the Conway Mid-Year Awards breakfast at the Plymouth Radisson.
Plymouth – The message to Jack Conway Realtors agents and managers at their recent Mid-Year Awards breakfast was loud and clear – the South Shore and Conway Country is going to be one of the hottest areas of growth over the next decade.
That prediction was delivered by Peter Forman, president of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce, to a roomful of more than 250 members of the Conway Company at the Plymouth Radisson. They heard Forman, a former state politician, sheriff and aide to the governor, describe their role in helping the region reach its potential.
“Conway Country has defined the South Shore and its economy for the last 20 to 30 years,” said Forman. “But that economy is now changing. And the outlook is very promising. When you sell that house, you need to sell the South Shore as a growing region.”
Forman was the main speaker at the annual Mid-Year Awards breakfast at which all 40 Conway offices top listers and sellers for the first six months were recognized. In addition, Conway-Mattapoisett agent Beth Van der Veer (sales) and Conway-South Boston agent Mike Foley (listings) were recognized as being the tops companywide.
“Our agents are the engine that drives this company, and we know how important they are,” said President Dick Cahill as he handed out the awards.
Chairman Jack Conway also delivered a special Conway Excellence Award to Massasoit Community College Professor Lois Martin, a recent winner of the Math Educator of the Year Award. Conway lauded Martin for her dedication to teaching a subject which is often difficult, but critical in this economy.
“I am so proud of our whole department, we are all about teaching at Massasoit,” said Martin, a longtime Kingston resident. “I just want to convey my love for the beauty of math to my students, and watch them succeed.”
The event was opened with Conway-Scituate agent Ed Covell leading the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. Covell is the newly-installed commander of the Scituate American Legion Post 144.
