LEDA Hosts STEM Event; Announces New Logo

John Dancoff

Last Thursday (August 1st) the Lincoln Economic Development Association (LEDA) hosted Lincoln County Schools' “Educators in the Workforce.” Thirty-three math and science teachers along with GEMS (Girls Excelling in Math & Science) sponsors were treated to a full day of industrial plant tours.

The educators toured Blum, Active Concepts, and Bosch. They were also treated to lunch and a presentation and overview of “Edge Factor,” a video format using story driven tools to tackle workforce development and bring real life stories into the classroom. The objective of the tour was to expose teachers to how STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) are used every day in our industrial workplaces as well as opening their eyes to careers available to their students right here in Lincoln County.

LEDA has a new logo, by the way.  Cliff Brumfield, LEDA’s executive director, said the new logo is aimed at giving a fresh look to the organization:  “This powerful new logo is carefully designed to represent the forward-looking personality of Lincoln County.  This is a vibrant area that is experiencing significant growth and positive change.”

After extensive research and numerous interviews, the logo was created by Brand Acceleration, an award-winning, full-service marketing and public relations firm that works exclusively in the economic development industry.
