They learned how the Beckleys came to own Glenwood Caverns 16 years after Steve first contacted the previous owner, Pete Prebble, and what they went through to get the cave cleaned up and opened to the public.

Edward Jones named one of People’s 2017 “50 Companies That Care”
Financial services firm Edward Jones placed among 50 exceptional organizations on People magazine’s inaugural “50 Companies That Care” list, jointly chosen by People magazine and consulting firm Great Place to Work. The outstanding companies were recognized for going above and beyond to create a caring environment for employees and for supporting them throughout their professional and personal lives.
Edward Jones came in at No. 19 on the list, which was based on more than 368,000 surveys from individuals employed by U.S. businesses across a range of industries. The 2017 “50 Companies That Care” also were selected based on the generosity of their benefits and charitable work, as well as personal accounts of the incredible impact these organizations have made on the lives of their employees.
“We are proud of this honor, which reflects our firm’s culture of striving to always do what is right — for our clients and our associates,” says local Edward Jones Financial Advisor Hollis Kelley. “We believe we have an opportunity to make a significant and meaningful difference in the lives of our clients, our associates and our communities where we live and work.”
