It was Sue Stivers' Day today, Friday, December 8, 2017. As she retires from her position as Executive Director of the Columbia Adair County Chamber of Commerce she was honored for her tireless community contributions throughout the years since 2002.

Presented by Senator Max Wise:

"Know ye that Sue Cravens Stivers is recognized and honored as she steps down as Executive Director of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce, a post she has fulfilled with great distinction since 2002.

"A graduate of Campbellsville College and the University of Kentucky who went on to complete graduate work at George Washington University, Ms. Stivers has labored for more than forty years on behalf of the UK Cooperative Extension Service.

"She served for nine years as the first home economics extension agent in Cumberland County before moving to Adair County, where she served as an extension agent for the next three decades.

"Following her retirement from the Cooperative Extension Service, she assumed her current post as Executive Director of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Commission.

"In addition to her work with the Chamber, where she has also served as President, Board Member, and Director of the Economic Development Authority, Ms. Stivers is a pillar of her community who has generously lent her time and talents to a multitude of other worthwhile organizations.

"She is a member of the Lindsey Wilson College Board of Trustees, the Columbia-Adair County Planning & Zoning Commission, the Adair County Work Ready Community, the Columbia By-Pass Committee, the Heartland Parkway Committee and the Kentucky Farmworkers Committee; a supporter of the Center for Rural Development's Rogers Scholars Program; Survivor Chairperson with Relay for Life; Chairperson of the Westlake Hospital Auxiliary; and a member, trustee and Sunday School teacher at Columbia Baptist Church.

"Inasmuch as Sue Cravens Stivers has worked tirelessly and with tremendous integrity and professionalism over the course of her career and has contributed immeasurably to the economic vitality and overall quality of life enjoyed by the residents of Columbia and Adair County, she is offered sincere commendation and gratitude for her years of exemplary service to her community; is extended best wishes for every future success as she continues to labor so diligently in the interest of the common good; and, on the motion of Senator Max Wise is hereby deemed by this honorable body most worthy of its recognition.

"Done in Frankfort, Kentucky, this sixth day of December, in the year two thousand seventeen."
