What Does Lenoir, NC Have in Common With Active Rain?

 

What does Lenoir, NC have in common with Active Rain? Diversity!

Lenoir, North Carolina is located northwest of Charlotte. Lenoir has just been named number 45 on "The Fifty Next Great Adventure Towns" by National Geographic Adventure Magazine. Small town Lenoir, which is nestled in the Blue Ridge Foothills, is on the same list as large cities San Francisco, San Antonio, and Boston. Lenoir’s Mayor David Barlow credits the revitalization in downtown, the multi-million dollar Google tech facility, and an active arts program as the key to the diversity of the town thus makes it a great place to live.

way to go

 

Active Rain is full of diversity too. Diversity is seen in professions and backgrounds.

Whether it is talking about the different professions that feed into the

real estate market there is diversity in real estate agents,

loan officers, home stagers, coaches, etc. There

is also diversity in everyone’s background

that has lead up to their present

profession. If true be told

I am sure that most

everyone on Active

Rain has had one

to three different

professions prior

to their current

profession.

Mayor David Barlow also says that another reason why Lenoir makes the list is because of its quality of life. With the massive manufacturing job loss in furniture and textiles the town remains strong due to the people. We have a huge amount of people on Active Rain that are at the top of their profession, just willing to share their experiences with us. Being able to soak-in what they share makes us stronger and more confident to strive for excellence in our industry.

We can be winners too!

Lenoir was also recently voted a 2008 All-America City Award. This award is the oldest community recognition program in the nation. This honor that is only given to ten cities each year; it recognizes communities whose citizens work together to identify and tackle community-wide challenges and achieve uncommon results.

great job

 

Congratulations Lenoir, North Carolina for a job well done!
