Welcome to Our Page!
The Park Hills-Leadington Chamber of Commerce would like to welcome you to Park Hills, Missouri and Leadington, Missouri. We hope you will enjoy the friendly small-town atmosphere as much as we have.
The Park Hills and Leadington communities have both played roles in Southeast Missouri’s rich mining history. The “Lead Belt” was once one of the largest producers of lead in the world. With the depletion of this resource, the cities have met the challenges of transitioning from a mining-based economy to one much more diversified. Many small businesses are flourishing and more start-up businesses are opening each year.
We are very proud to have one of the finest community colleges in the state within our city limits. Both cities share an award-winning public school system, which is fully supported by a proud community.
If you enjoy the outdoors, you will love our parks. Our city parks are well-maintained and we are blessed with St. Joe State Park, one of the most visited state parks in the U.S., located right on our doorstep.
Whether just visiting or a new neighbor, you will find that Park Hills and Leadington are friendly, fun-filled communities. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Park Hills-Leadington Chamber of Commerce at (573) 431-1051. It is a distinct privilege to welcome you to our cities.

Raylyn White Awarded Park Hills - Leadington Chamber Scholarship
The Park Hills - Leadington Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is excited to announce that the fourth recipient of the Chamber Scholarship is, 2018 Central High School Graduate, Raylyn White! Raylyn was awarded the scholarship at the Central High School Academic Banquet on May 3, 2018.
Raylyn, daughter of Jeremy and Wendy White, will receive $500 per semester, for up to four consecutive semesters, towards her initial enrollment at Mineral Area College and follow her through the bridge program to Central Methodist University. The scholarship will help with the cost of classes, supplies, and other needs as she works to earn her Associate’s Degree at MAC, followed by, her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting at CMU.
Raylyn admits that her college education is just a bridge to what she wants to do after college. She has been an active member of her church her entire life and explains that her church played a very large role in deciding what she wanted to do after high school. Raylyn says that she feels as if she is being led toward a leadership role within her church. For her, an accounting degree will enable her to assist the church with financial guidance, as well as, allow for a flexible schedule with the ability to work from home so that she can continue to work with those in need. Her future goals include working with young people and those in need.
Strongly vested in her faith, Raylyn spends much of her spare time working with the church’s Bus Ministry kids. She explains that these children are from very low-income homes; many of them face challenges that most of us could never imagine. She helps to mentor these children, teach them, and assists in finding them opportunities that they might not otherwise have access too. She plans to continue this work no matter where the future takes her. Raylyn told us “my entire educational goal is to prepare myself for what God had called me to do: be a servant to those around me.”
As a recipient of the Park Hills – Leadington Chamber of Commerce Scholarship, Raylyn will receive her first $500 installment of funds to assist with fall classes at Mineral Area College during 2018. Three more $500 installments will be available to Raylyn; one for each consecutive semester she attends Mineral Area College, Central Methodist University, or Missouri Baptist University. She will receive a total of $2,000 in financial aid toward her continuing education studies. After finishing her associate’s degree at Mineral Area College, Raylyn plans to continue her education at Central Methodist University, earning her bachelor’s degree in accounting.
Finally, one of the recipient requirements of the scholarship outlines the importance of being an active member of the community in which you live, by insisting that the scholarship recipient attend and/or volunteer at one Chamber of Commerce Investor Meeting and one Chamber Sponsored Events such as the Annual Firecracker Run or Sweetheart Trivia Night. We look forward to having Raylyn join us at an investor meeting and help at one of our Chamber sponsored events. This will be a great opportunity for Chamber Investors and local members of the community to congratulate her on an outstanding high school academic record and continuing education plan!
