This award is presented directly from the Chamber’s Board of Directors to a Destin area businessperson showing vision for his or her business and leadership in our community. Bowyer is seen above with the Chamber's 2024 Chairman of the Board Christian Carlee of Trustmark.

Stepping Stones Early Learning Academy is a preschool for children ages 1-5 that provides an adventurous setting for those in their early learning years to flourish. Its goal is to teach children to love God, provide a positive foundation for a life-long love of learning, and promote independence with a focus on social and emotional aspects of a child’s development. The preschool offers a structured curriculum along with exposure to classical arts, science, and cooking that allows students to learn through play, exploration, and discovery.

Stepping Stones has two locations in Niceville and just cut the ribbon on Stepping Stones at Roane in Destin. For details, visit or call (850) 650-0137. Visit the Destin location inside Regatta Commons at 4465 Legendary Dr.

“I remember years ago when Tammie began talking about opening a childcare center. When the timing was right, she and her family did not hesitate, and it certainly has proven to be the right move. What she has done with three centers in less than a few years is amazing, but it’s because of the care and love she puts into it.  Any successful businessperson will tell you those are two things that are vital to success.  It’s a well-deserved honor,” said Shane A. Moody, CCE, FCCP.
