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
