Wirt County resident Diane Ludwig has been hired as the Executive Director of the Little Kanawha Area Development Corporation. Ludwig was given a two-year contract to develop economic opportunities for Wirt and Calhoun counties. The two-county project allows more money to be accessed from government for job creation.

Ludwig, who has a background in economic development, was hired for $37,000 annually, with a $4000 benefit package.

The company sought applications for the position, and sources said the field of applicants was narrowed to three people.

The LKADC meets monthly, alternating between Elizabeth and Grantsville, according to President Dan McDonald.
