The Big Spring Economic Development Corparation gave heartfelt thanks to two board members whose terms had expired and welcomed two new faces at Tuesday night's meeting.
Dr. Keith Ledford and Justin Myers were given certificates of appreciation for their service to the EDC and Big Spring.
“It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve on the board under the stewardship of Terry Wegman,” said Dr. Ledford in his farewell address. To incoming board members Ledford gave this advice, “Keep in mind we have to be concerned with not only today, but with the future at hand. boom or bust.”
Justin Myers said he reiterated Ledford's advice and that he hoped that his decisions had been good ones in regards to the changing economic developments of Big Spring and increasing career opportunities for her citizens.
Myers also commended fellow board members for a job well done. “I have to commend Teresa (Darden) and Terry (Wegman) for the work they do,” Myers said. “They do a great job and we couldn't ask for anyone better than Terry. Hopefully we have made Big Spring a better place. There are good things coming and I can't thank you enough.”
