Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce welcomes new director

By Crystal Wimberly

LAWRENCEVILLE - The Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce has been without an executive director since the beginning of February when former executive director Rachel Hipsher resigned from the position. That all changed last week when it was announced that Lawrence County resident Paige Harvey had been hired to fill the vacant position.

"After several interviews and with careful consideration we decided to fill the executive director's position with Paige Harvey," said chamber board member Teresa Cunningham. "Paige has been acting as our assistant director for a month and has done a great job, she signed two new Chamber members while working in the temporary capacity."

Harvey lives in Lawrence County and is a 2017 graduate of Red Hill High School. She was also a member of the Lawrence County CEO class and currently sits on the board for the program. She has been working in a similar Chamber director capacity for the past several weeks.

"She is young and full of energy," said Cunningham. "Paige is already familiar with many of the Chamber's events and her overall personality meets the expectations that the Chamber director should have."

"I was hired as the assistant first," said Harvey. "Then after several interviews I was given the director position and I'm excited to move forward." Harvey was also in charge of putting together the second annual Shamrock Sweet Shuffle which took place on March 13 and featured 26 local businesses.

"We sold over 50 tickets, which was good considering what's going on with the virus," said Harvey. "We had a lot of participation throughout the seven hour event which also featured some new businesses this year."

The first item on Harvey's agenda as the new director is to bring back the Farmer's Market.

"I've already talked to the city and we are discussing the plans," said Harvey. "The market will start this spring and run into fall."

Harvey says that while business is slow right now, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus around the country, she hopes things will pick up soon.

"I'm ready to get started," said Harvey. "We are still looking for an assistant, someone motivated and ready to work, I'm really excited to see what our future holds."
