West Kentucky Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation (WKRECC) recently donated $15,000 to Kentucky Lake Economic Development (KLED) to support its mission to retain, expand and attract quality manufacturing, distribution and service industries to Marshall County.

The money is earmarked to support KLED’s recruiting and marketing efforts.

“Economic development is essential to help strengthen the local economy and provide greater economic opportunity for our members,” said WKRECC President and CEO David Smart. “We are proud to partner with Kentucky Lake Economic Development to help ensure their continuing success.”

“Kentucky Lake Economic Development in Marshall County would like to sincerely thank West Kentucky Rural Electric and the board of directors for continuing to support our efforts in economic development,” said KLED President Josh Tubbs. “Our utilities play an integral part in our ability to attract new investment and expand our existing industry. Simply put, we could not do it without the support and partnership of WKRECC,” he added.

WKRECC also provides technical support to KLED and WKRECC Energy Program Engineer Corey Belcher serves on the KLED board of directors.
