Carroll County is not an island

Six Carroll County community members were trained along with representatives from 13 other communities for more than a year to “think like a region” and enhance economic development options. The initiative was developed by the Indiana University Kokomo Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) and used federal funding for the project. Class members celebrated their “graduation” Friday with a ceremony, meal and group photo. “It’s important to be involved regionally,” Delphi City Police Chief Justin Darling said after the ceremony. “Carroll County is not an island.” County representatives included Carroll County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sana Booker, economic development director Daryl Smith, EDC/chamber executive assistant Julia Leahy, Delphi Preservation Society member Anita Werling, Eric Flora of Brenneco Fire Protection, and Darling.
