AFTON, OKLAHOMA -

A leading business owner is honored for their contributions to the community.

The First National Bank of Vinita held their second annual Excellence in Business award ceremony tonight. The annual event is held to recognize the economic impact that businesses have in the area. 

This year, it was held at the Shangri-La Resort and tonight's winner - was the owner.

Eddy Gibbs, owner of Shangri-La, says he attributes his success to the people that helped make his dream a reality. He says, "I'm just the investor. I've got a team here that did all the work. Ya know, of course I was heavily involved in designing and putting the model together, but that's the success, is these folks that work here."

The resort employs two-hundred-twenty people, and has a more than one-hundred million dollar financial impact on the area. 

Mike Williams, the Communication Director for Shangri-La, says that Gibbs is much more than a good business man. He says,"Eddy Gibbs is quite a man. He's done so much for so many. He's not a man to talk about it that much, he's a man to talk about we need to do more for education. He's that guy."

The Shangri-La Resort opened June 1st, 20-17.
