The state of Alabama made economic history today. Bocar’s selection of Alabama as their first site in the United States demonstrates confidence in our workforce, quality of life, and business climate. The auto supplier’s future 350,000 square foot plant as well as the creation of over 300 jobs reaffirms our state’s competitiveness in the global marketplace.
Today we were honored to hear Bocar’s story of commitment to family, excellence, human capital, and future generations. We thank Bocar Group for their investment in Huntsville, Limestone County, and the entire state of Alabama, a presence that highlights the company's important role in our state’s positioning as a national and global leader in the automotive industry.
It takes a team to build Alabama. Thank you to everyone who collaborated to bring this project to fruition.
Last week we spent two days at the GEDI Policy Summit sharing best practices on ways to strengthen Alabama's rural communities. Topics covered within the theme "Blueprint for Rural Alabama" included workforce development, health care, marketing small towns, legislation, and creativity.
Thank you to Auburn University and the Economic Development Association of Alabama (EDAA) for coordinating the summit. When members of a community are given the opportunity to collaborate, cities and towns are built.
It was an honor to meet with Riva Hirsch, a Holocaust survivor, in Troy today, as part of a collaboration between Troy University and the Alabama Humanities Foundation.
Mrs. Hirsch shared profound words: Miracles are real (she is one!). Make history. Be different.
Thank you to all who coordinated this moving lecture. #LivingHistory #Our67

Today marked a beautiful day as Thrive at Jones Farm held a Blessing of the Hands Ceremony and Prayer Walk.
God bless each and every worker who dedicates his or her life to assisted living and memory care. What a beautiful project in Jones Valley, literally and metaphorically.
