Illinois’ Business Development Director Visits Shawnee Community College

Victor Narusis, Director of Business Development for the State of Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, visited Shawnee Community College for a brief meet and greet with local business owners, tourism bureau and college staff members.

Narusis emphasized the importance of making local communities vibrant, along with attracting more people and businesses to the area. After opening up the discussion for feedback, one attendee brought attention to the state needing to fight the negative perceptions of the area, which causes young people to move away, as well as keeping away potential residents.

Candy Eastwood, coordinator for the Center of Community and Economic Development and Illinois Small Business Development Center at Shawnee Community College, commented on the state budget impasse stating, “everyone is committed to working together” when the discussion turned to the lack of resources.
