Levelland Main Street Director Tania Moody was thrilled to make the cut and looks forward to the next steps: “I was sitting in a workshop on Main Street in Laramie, WY on transformation strategies and my Apple Watch got rang. It was an email notification from TDA that we were finalists for the President’s Award. I was so excited!” In her second year as Main Street Manager for Levelland, Moody is on pins and needles for the November announcement. Meanwhile, she’ll be pounding the pavement and your inboxes and phones. will ask you to vote for People’s Choice.” The TDA award is out of my hands at this point, so it’s a waiting game, but for People’s Choice, my goal is to use this as an opportunity to further market the amazing things we have in downtown Levelland and at the same time try and get the coveted People’s Choice Award for Best Public Improvement of 2022.”
