The Butler County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Nancy Reader, Hearth and Home Furnishings, has been selected as the William A. Morgan, Jr. Entrepreneur of the Year 2018. “What else can we do with this?” Nancy Reader recalls asking herself in the 1970s. Then, her late husband Jim owned L&R Glass, and she was doing the book work, raising her young children and working with an occasional customer to replace a broken fireplace glass. Born of the question of how to expand the operation was Reader’s own business, “Hearth & Home Furnishings” in Zelienople. Now celebrating a 35-year anniversary and 14-employees strong, the success of Hearth & Home Furnishings coupled with Reader’s community and charitable contributions earned her this year’s William A. Morgan Jr. Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
