Awhile back, our wonderful business development coordinator, Nancy Glaubke, had an opportunity to meet with a researcher from the University of North Carolina school of government.  He was investigating 50 small towns, nationwide, that represented innovative or creative strategies for rural development.

Today I was informed that a 259 page report had just been released, touting Ord as one of the 50 *national* models for rural development excellence.  You can read the full report here.  A detailed write-up of Ord can be found here.  The fantastic part – Ord is the only Nebraska community recognized!

Congrats to *everyone* that was part of this effort, and thanks to Nancy for showing this gentlemen our great community.
