Clarksville, TN: Aspire V campaign nears $4 million
In 1996, NCDS helped create and fund the Aspire Clarksville program. Since its inception as a $1.6 million marketing fund, this program, thanks to focus and direction from its private sector leaders, has evolved into a comprehensive approach to economic development and has delivered notable wins and progress to Montgomery County. NCDS' Russ Leach recently concluded his assignment on the Aspire V campaign with a victory celebration announcing almost $4 million raised to date - all from private sources and $200,000 over the goal set last October. We salute the business leaders in Clarksville who have remained steadfast in their support of the Aspire program for almost twenty years. We also welcome new Executive Director Cal Wray to town and wish him well in his leadership of this unique and successful partnership.
