In her new role, Colburn oversees Bluecoast Seafood Grill + Raw Bar in Bethany Beach and Lupo Italian Kitchen in Rehoboth Beach.

At age 19, Colburn was one of the first employees hired at Bluecoast in Bethany, which is SoDel Concepts’ flagship restaurant. She became the general manager of Bluecoast in Bethany Beach in 2014. Considered an expert in service and front-of-the-house operations, she’s also worked in many of the other SoDel Concepts restaurants.

“Shannon is such a dedicated employee,” Kammerer said. “She takes pride in her work and our company, and that shows. She’s been a tremendous asset since the first day she started. I often joke that SoDel and Shannon have grown up together — they share all the same ideals and the same commitment to excellence.”


Firm Wins Awards

SALISBURY — The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Chesapeake Bay Chapter recently presented Becker Morgan Group with the 2017 Merit Award and People’s Choice Award for Crisfield Public Library and a Citation Award for Snow Hill High School.

The new Crisfield Library serves as a community center and information hub for this small waterside community by providing a 21st century facility that offers opportunities to engage with technology and alternative education programs.

The addition and renovations to Snow Hill High School encompassed a complex process which included four phases of construction over a three-year period while the school remained occupied. An intensive planning effort with the School District and High School staff, students, and the citizens of Snow Hill was undertaken to ensure the transformation of the existing 70,000-square-foot facility into a new 130,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art school met their objectives and reflected the needs and feel of the community.
