TDS associate named Meridian (ID) Chamber Ambassador of the Year

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is congratulating Scott McDonald, an account executive in Boise, Idaho, for being named Ambassador of the Year by the Meridian (ID) Chamber of Commerce.

The Meridian Chamber of Commerce works to serve, strengthen, and promote the Meridian business community. Ambassadors help recruit and retain chamber members and strengthen engagement with the organization -- often attending ribbon cuttings and grand openings, working chamber events, and developing relationships with new members.

After working for TDS out of state for about six years, McDonald returned to his Treasure Valley roots in 2020 and quickly became active with the Meridian chamber.

“I saw some amazing people who were chamber ambassadors and knew immediately I wanted to be a part of it. The Meridian Chamber of Commerce works hard to make sure our business community succeeds. I was extremely excited about the chance to help build the TDS brand and network while supporting other local businesses,” said McDonald, who grew up in Nampa.

In addition to the chamber, McDonald has also participated in Rake Up events in Meridian and Garden City (and, soon, Nampa); Boys and Girls Club activities; and the Idaho Veterans Chamber of Commerce. McDonald served 20 years in the U.S. Navy, from 1990 to 2010.

McDonald received the Ambassador of the Year Award during the chamber’s awards lunch on Tuesday, Nov. 2.

“With over 20 outstanding ambassadors that have served the chamber of many years, it was an incredible honor to receive this award,” McDonald said. “The Treasure Valley is an amazing place to live and raise a family, and I’m just grateful to live here and give back to my hometown.”
