"This is the ninth year I’ve chaired the event planning committee, but I’ve been involved in planning the chamber’s annual banquet many more years than that,” Shinn said. “I’ve always supported the Nacogdoches chamber, and event planning is what I do. Peggy Jasso asked that I chair the event when she served as chair of the board of directors, and every board chairperson has asked me to lead the committee since then.”
