T. “Kenny” Thompson, Samie Wiley and Mark Mizell, District 2 Commissioner Ken Livingston, Hartselle Utilities General Manager Ferrell Vest and Board Chairman Mike Gunter, Allison Ross of the Morgan County Economic Development Association, NARCOG Transportation Director Dewayne Hellums, Johnny Howell, chairman of the Hartselle Transportation Committee, Bob Francis, chairman of the Hartselle Development Board and Susan Hines, president of the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce.
