Cruger and Team Win Governor’s 2021 Main Street Award

Governor Burgum awarded Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corporation’s workforce development manager, Becca Cruger, and contributing team members the 21st Century Workforce Award at the Main Street Summit on Tuesday, October 12 in West Fargo, ND. Cruger was recognized for the Greater Grand Forks Relocation Guide, the “What’s Cooler Today?” blog, and InternGF—the program designed to increase the number of local internships, aiding employers’ workforce recruitment and retention efforts by introducing UND students to career and entrepreneurial opportunities in the greater Grand Forks region.

“I’m honored that the Governor recognized all the work that we have done on these workforce initiatives. These projects and programs would not have been possible without our amazing partners at UND, the City, the County, the CVB, the Chamber and regional industry.  I’m thankful to be part of such a collaborative community that shares the passion of making the Grand Forks region a great place to work and live,” said Cruger.

North Dakota’s Main Street initiative is a shared vision of healthy, vibrant communities that through fiscally responsible planning, attract the talent needed to support our growing economy. The Main Street Awards honor communities who show excellence in these principles by actively working to differentiate and enhance the quality of life for their residents, present and future. These awards are an opportunity for communities to showcase their unique efforts and attributes, and call attention to the tangible benefits an engaged community can create.
