Professor Mark Peterson from the University of Arkansas was the featured speaker at the Growing Corning Together meeting last Thursday night, January 31. Peterson, who specializes in a professor in Community and Economic Development, has assisted several communities through a program, Breakthrough Solutions. Breakthrough Solutions is an award-winning, next-generation strategic planning and development program of the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service that partners with public, private and non-profit sectors. He came to the meeting to help steer the group and Corning in the most effective direction.
