U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, entered the story of iBec Creative and its founder, Becky Stockbridge McKinnell, into the Congressional Record, which is the official journal of the daily proceedings in Congress. Snowe praised iBec as an example of the innovative small businesses that fuel the U.S. economy and create jobs.
The senior Senator from Maine recognized McKinnell for her entrepreneurial spirit and ingenuity. Snowe added: iBec Creative is a remarkable small business whose story demonstrates how community involvement and encouragement can help entrepreneurs of all ages realize their aspirations and dreams.
Snowe noted in her remarks that BusinessWeek magazine recently named McKinnell one of America's Best Young Entrepreneurs. The Senator also pointed out that McKinnell is the first Maine resident to become a finalist in the five-year-old national competition.
It's exciting to see our business receive recognition nationally, McKinnell said. I hope that the iBec story can provide encouragement to young entrepreneurs and others who are starting out in their careers. So many young people are struggling right now to find work or pursue their chosen fields, and it's important for them to realize that it's possible for people to achieve their dreams.
