2011 Distinguished Citizen Sammie Danford

Cullman County Economic Development Office staff seen with Danford Thursday, March 24, 2011 at the Sportsman Lake pier, from left, are Buchanan Jackson, Cherrie Haney and Rich Partain. The new pier wouldn't be there without the CCEDO's going after, and getting, the grant funds to cover its cost. "I love my staff. They are great. I can trust each of them to represent our county well, whether I'm around to witness it or not. They've all been here a long time, we all like each other and we all work well together. If I'm good at anything, it's putting good people around me and taking the credit for it," she says jokingly.
