Barbour chamber selects members of the month

Eric Cutright and Carla Skidmore are the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce Members of the Month for October.

Cutright is the owner of Cutright Photography and the Barbour Publishing Co., which produces the weekly Barbour Democrat. Skidmore is manager of Freedom Bank in Philippi.

Skidmore is a Clarksburg native raised in Philippi. She graduated from Philip Barbour High School and attended Alderson-Broaddus College. She is a graduate of the West Virginia School of Banking. She joined the Philippi branch of Freedom Bank in 1994, where she serves as manager and loan officer. She is a member of Philippi Main Street and the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce.

Skidmore said, “One of the things of which I am most proud is the ‘Welcome Home Philosophy’ that we feel serves as the foundation of our success. Freedom Bank doesn’t feel like a bank – it feels like a home. Our customers and employees seem like one big happy family.”

A native of Philippi and graduate of Philip Barbour High School, Cutright opened Eric Cutright Photography in 2000 and purchased the Barbour Publishing Co. in 2008.

While continuing to provide professional photography, he has expanded the services of the publishing company to offer digital printing choices and special features, including true color matching, digital press, offset printing, full-bleed borderless printing, perfect binding, saddle stitching, custom sizes, walk-in copy service, design, banners, posters, pamphlets, half-fold, tri-fold and more.
