C3 in the News

Highlight Video of Northwest Alabama EDA’s 2023 Annual Meeting

Last month, Northwest Alabama EDA held its annual “State of the Region” Meeting at the Holiday Inn in Guin, Alabama. Here are some of the highlights of the event:

The video includes remarks from long-time C3 supporter, Congressman Robert Aderholt, who commended our region for working together. The keynote speaker was Mike Raita, Regional Director for Senator Tommy Tuberville, and former poular sports newscaster. Mike talked about teamwork, leadership, and perseverance.

We had a great turnout at the event this year! Thank you for everyone who attended. A key theme was honoring the tremendous impact that our schools, teachers, coaches, and trainers have on kids – the future workforce of our region.

Northwest Alabama EDA recognized Tombigbee Electric Cooperative President & CEO, Steve Foshee, with a special Community Service Award. Our Champion of the Year is Stanley Allred, the Mayor of Millport. Industry of the Year is Timber Creek Housing, which opened a new facility in Bear Creek in 2021-22.
