Tammy Benedict Mengee Awarded
Tammy Benedict Mengee has recently been selected for inclusion in the Trademark Women of Distinction 2020 Honors Edition for her demonstration of dedication, leadership, and professional excellence. This honor recognizes women in the business field who share many qualities, such as dedication, expertise, humility, personal service, honesty, and integrity. These qualities drive her to succeed in her family business, Benedict’s Bus Service.
In 1991, they bought the motorcoaches and by 1992, Tammy began channeling her passion for traveling into providing bus tours, transportation, and trips. Since then, Benedict’s Bus Service has been traveling to places all over the United States and beyond. With all the restrictions due to the pandemic, they’ve had to get a little creative to continue to provide meaningful experiences for their guests. So, in addition to going above and beyond to ensure safety precautions are followed for the bus trips, Tammy has also created a new experience for Tioga County – cooking classes!
The Rookie Cooks Academy brings together local chefs to share their expertise, giving community members the fun opportunity to make their own meals! Classes are available for both adults and children, ranging in topic from children’s pizza-making to a surf & turf steak and shrimp meal! Each participant has their own work station, complete with pots, pans, utensils, an apron, and all their ingredients. Each station is socially distanced and all ingredients are pre-measured to ensure that each person is only touching the ingredients that are used for their individual meal. All classes are held at the Tioga County Fairgrounds. If you are interested in having a group cooking class, you can call Benedict’s to reserve your spots at 570-724-5867 or email email@example.com.
Tammy credits her passion for this business to her father, for the powerful impact he has had on this community and so many people’s lives. Her mom is also a big role model in her life. Tammy credits her mother for her organization and accounting skills, coordination for events, and professional attention to detail.
Tammy’s advice for young women is: “Follow your dreams; don’t let fear hold you back; don’t let money hold you back. You have to pursue what you want, and do it the best way that you can. You can’t think you’re going to be a failure if you don’t try. You have to push forward and try.”
Home Page would like to congratulate Tammy for this recognition for her hard work and dedication!
