Employee of the Month Boss of the Quarter
Terry Claussen – Boss of the Quarter Terry Claussen – 2020 4th Quarter Boss of the Quarter Nominated by Stacey Mahlke On behalf of the employees of Claussen’s Clothing Store in LeMars, we would like to honor Terry Claussen as the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce 2020 4th Quarter Boss of the Quarter.  Terry Claussen owns Claussen's Clothing Store and has been a dedicated businessperson for over 40 years in the retail business, 30 of those right here in LeMars. Terry has been an outstanding boss and leader for many employees throughout the many years.  When you work for Terry, you are not just another employee.  He has a special way of making you feel like you are a part of his family.   They say when you love your job it does not feel like work and for me and several others, that is exactly the case.  I truly look forward to going to work every day.   Terry is laid back, open minded, and always lends an ear when needed.  He gives direction without being "bossy" and is always interested in listening to other points of view.  Terry deserves recognition for a job well done this year and every year.  Thank you for being the best boss ever!  For these reasons we choose to salute Terry Claussen with the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce 4th Quarter Boss of the Quarter award.  Congratulations!
