Summer CrickWEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (3/6/19) — The former Madisonville Community Development Director has been hired as Webster County Industrial Development Authority Director of Community and Economic Development.

Summer Crick, a 27-year-old Madisonville resident, said Webster County officials thought she would be “the best fit for the position.”

She will begin the new role March 18, answering to the leadership of Webster County Judge-Executive Steve Henry, Industrial Development Authority Board Chairman Mark Moser and work closely with mayors, councils and members of the community.

“She will fit that role and be solid at it,” Henry said. "I feel fortunate, but it honestly fell into place, like it was meant to happen. That’s always a good sign.”

The judge-executive said Webster County is moving forward in an aggressive effort to position itself better, economically.

“We fully understand for us to get there, it will take community development as well,” Henry said. “The timing of Summer’s availability put all the pieces into place to make that happen. She will do an awesome job. Webster County is a great community and very deserving of the efforts that are being put in place.”

Crick said she plans to pursue some projects to boost morale in the community through events and a leadership program in addition to bringing businesses and the community together to lure economic development.

“I’m really excited to get started to work in one direction and make everything better,” Crick said, adding she will continue to be involved in Hopkins County Young Professionals.

She believes in being a leader for the good of the entire region in unity.

“I like to think of it all as one big effort,” she said, adding Henry took note of her efforts in Hopkins County.

Crick obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Kentucky Wesleyan and a master’s in public administration from the University of Evansville.

The western Kentucky pioneer enjoys spending time with her family, and also her pug, “Rupert.” She likes to bake and go running in her free time.
