Much excitement has been generated in the past several months about Statesboro’s participation in the “America’s Best Communities” contest. It’s big news for Statesboro to take part in a challenge that, according to Joe Clayton, CEO and President of DISH Network, one of the sponsors of the contest, “is a fantastic opportunity to share how small and rural towns are developing creative solutions for economic and cultural sustainability.” Clayton went on to say, “At its core, the contest gives voice to the best ways we can help communities across the country thrive for generations to come.”
