Economic Development Professionals
Board Member Spotlight â€“ CAWACO RC&D
Fred Crawford is the Economic Developer for Chilton County. As such, his responsibilities are to recruit business and to work with business to help them stay in Chilton County and/or expand. Fred tells me he enjoys trying to get autographs on baseball cards, as well as autographs of baseball Hall of Fame players on baseballs. His passion is to help the University of Montevallo and the American Village in any way he can. He hopes Cawaco will help make some dreams a reality through its grants program. Fred says Cawaco was foreign to him until he was hired and took the position as Economic Developer, in June of 2012. He then found out about Cawaco by looking in the files of the Industrial Development Board. Fred tells me, "I thought Cawaco looked like a good thing to be involved in." Since then, Fred has become a very active Board Member who ferrets out new projects and identifies areas of need in Chilton County. I asked Fred what types of projects he is most interested in, and his response was, "Projects that interest me the most are the ones that get young people to think responsibly about in their life." He added, "The grants to the LeCroy Career Technical School and to Calera High School are the ones that I like best.
Fred Crawford with the Chilton County Industrial Development Board said the main purpose of the event is to say "thank you" to the industries that risk their capital and come up with plans to market and produce goods throughout the county.
"These industries bring about employment, sales tax and good quality of life in Chilton County," Crawford said. "So often in society we do not tell people thank you for what they do, and this event is a good time to do that." In 2013, the theme of the first Industry Appreciation Night was highlighting the arts, education and recreation in Chilton County, but Crawford said this year would highlight the development taking place throughout the county. The event will include a reception at 6:30 p.m. and a program at 7 p.m. "We will have Judge Sibley Reynolds speaking about the hospital, an update from Chilton County Airport Authority board member Billy Singleton, who will speak about the airport, and I will speak on the two industrial parks in the county," Crawford said. Crawford said the Jemison High School Band will also perform. "We will give plaques to industries that do exporting and to those who have expanded jobs and invested in equipment and facilities," Crawford said.
