Chamber President Resigns
Committing to Private Business
May 4, 2022
Almost two years ago, the Cheyenne County Chamber of Commerce announced a new president and CEO.
McKailie Carnahan-Kuhns was selected as the new President/CEO, replacing Hope Feeney. Feeney and her husband Eamonn moved to the North Platte area for the Feeneys to teach at Maxwell High School. Feeney was hired as a business teacher at Maxwell High School and her husband Eamonn as head football coach.
Carnahan-Kuhns came to the Chamber as a business owner. She has her own photography business. It is that business that drew her away from the business. She announced she is pursuing photography fulltime.
“I am so grateful for my time in this role and the community support I have received. I am beyond excited to announce that I will be diving all in with my photography business,” she said in a written statement.
When she came to the Chamber, she commended the support of the community and the number of people who were involved in its activities. She said there are many people who want to see the area succeed.
Her appointment to the Chamber is a result of one thing leading to another, primarily contacts made through her photography business.
Like Feeney, Carnahan-Kuhns is locally born and raised, and has seen other parts of the world. She is a Sidney native who has experienced other areas of the country, from the East Coast to Denver.
