No doubt you have seen our familiar face at numerous Chamber events. Deborah Haynie has been involved with the Chamber for many years and has served as host for her employer’s many sponsored events on behalf of the Chamber. So, where did it all start?
She was born in Dallas but spent her early years in South Texas, namely in Charlotte, Texas. Quick geography lesson here, Charlotte is in southwestern Atascosa County, which is a part of the San Antonio region. Later, as college beckoned, Deborah attended Howard Payne University and the University of Texas at El Paso. She made her way to Houston in 1973.
Professionally, Deborah must have some automotive interests because she joined Tommie Vaughn Ford as the Customer Relations contact, and serves in that role today. In this capacity she says: “I have the pleasure to meet and visit with our customers plus extending thanks for their business.” Makes sense because she is outgoing, generous with her time, and sincere in her efforts to build favorable relationships for the dealership.
Did we say generous with her time? Well, yes, because she is a member of the Houston Heights Rotary Club, where she was awarded the Paul Harris Award for service, and a lifetime member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. In her leisure time, Deborah enjoys spending time with her father and family in North Texas along with, as she says, “anything artsy!” That includes plays, opera, and musicals in conjunction with cycling and water aerobics. The Chamber appreciates involved members like Deborah Haynie and recognizes the contributions in time and dedication she continually exhibits. Thank you Deborah.
