More great coverage of Archway Partnership partners – in this case, Hart County economic development and the Industrial Building Authority. And a great mention of some of the support they get through Archway from Director Dwayne Dye.

---- “The county’s inclusion in the University of Georgia’s Archway Partnership has been a huge factor in providing ideas, frameworks for growth and in bringing many areas of the community together to work for a better Hart County, Dye said. “The importance of this forum and process, in my opinion, cannot be over stated and has developed an outreach deep into the community,” Dye said.

They’ve got amazing leadership at the IBA and we couldn’t ask for better partners! The Hartwell Sun​ Hart Chamber #UGAPartners
