EDC honors businesses

April 17, 2007

The Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission honored the local business and industrial community April 10 at Celebration of Business 2007 at Fountain Head Country Club.

The Economic Development Commission honored nearly 35 local businesses that have reached milestones in the number of years they have been conducting business in Washington County.

The event was sponsored by A.C.&T. Co. Inc.; Bowman Development Corp.; Centra Bank; Charles E. Brake Co. Inc.; City of Hagerstown; Corporate Office Properties Trust; Ellsworth Electric Inc.; Fidelity Bank; Frederick, Seibert & Associates Inc.; Hagerstown Kitchens Inc.; Hagerstown Trust Co.; Keller-Stonebraker Insurance Inc.; Kline Associated Roofing Contractors Inc.; Liberty Property Trust; Maryland Department of Business & Economic Development; Orrstown Bank; PenMar Development Corporation; Sovereign Bank; Susquehanna Bank; and Tri-County Council for Western Maryland.

The keynote speaker for the event was Kelly Wright, co-host of the weekend morning show "FOX and Friends" on the FOX News Channel. Wright, a general-assignment reporter for FOX's Washington bureau, began his broadcast career in Hagerstown at age 16 as an announcer for WJEJ radio during broadcasts of North Hagerstown High School football games. He later developed his own show, called "Soulful Sounds," which aired weekly on WARK radio.
