Svehla awarded for small business

Hope Moural/FS

Christy Svehla, owner of The Freckled Door in Friend, was awarded a Young Entreprenuer award Aug. 28 by Nebraska Congressman Adrian Smith in honor of her small business. “Smith was very interested in learning the ins and outs of my business,” Svehla said. “I was impressed with his encouragement on the importance of small businesses and their impact.” Smith was given a tour of the store and given a “No place like Nebraka” door sign painted by Svehla. “It was a very special day,” Svehla said.
