Socketeer-of-the-Year 2011


Seven years ago a prestigious award was created called Socketeer-of-the-Year.

Allie Schomaker Socketeer of the YearIt's a cool honor we created to recognize one of our monthly You-Make-the-Difference-Award winners
This year, at our annual company Christmas party, Socket owners George, John and Carson revealed their choice for the 2011 winner--Allie Schomaker.
So 7 must be Allie’s lucky number.  Not only did she win this award in its seventh year but she was able to see her favorite artist, Kenny Chesney, in the seventh month of the year.

(Allie's a pretty big Kenny fan.)
Allie was born and raised right here in Missouri. She is originally from Marceline and moved to Columbia in 2004. We were lucky enough to have her join Socket’s marketing department in 2006 and she's been doing all sorts of things ever since.
Projects related to marketing, advertising, public relations, communications...even this blog (when we don't hijack it to talk about how great she is).

YMTD winners for 2011
2011 You-Make-the-Difference Award winners included (L-R):
James Hicks, Jeff Gray, Jason Vander Veen, Dave Sill, Allie Schomaker, Ryan Luff, Nate Howland, Kevin Gandara, Corey Wyatt and (not pictured) John Weant.

In her spare time, Allie likes to spend time with her husband, Richard, and their two-year-old daughter, Aubrey. She also likes running, reading and traveling.
"I love working at Socket because I'm constantly challenged and there is always something new to learn and do," Allie says. "I'm glad I'm making a positive contribution here."
So congratulations to Allie. She's the Good Stuff (you Kenny fans know what we mean).
