"Made in Mankato" Man Recognized as Good People Award Recipient

MANKATO , MINN. -

Jordan Powers and his team have spent the last few months opening doors for Mankato's business community.

Jordan Powers says, "I noticed all the small businesses here that are unique in the area and I wanted to highlight them."

A filmmaker by trade, Jordan wanted to hone his skills.

Jordan says, "I thought, how can I use what I do, to give back to the community."

So, in April of 2013, the idea started to come to life. And by September it all came into focus. Jordan had assembled a team of volunteers that now make up "Made in Mankato," a group that produces a documentary each month on a local business.

Jordan says, "I really believe in giving back, especially in a community like Mankato that's built on small business, I want to network with them and showcase what they have to offer."

Ted Wittman is Jordan's right hand man and says their mission is simple.

Ted Wittman says, "We come in and support local business and our craft as well."

With his team behind him, Jordan Powers is this month's Jefferson Good People Award Recipient.
