Tara Walker of Mid-Tec in Pineville is relatively new to the board, only having served one year, but Mid-Tec itself has been a long standing supporter and member. Tara decided to become a board member because she believes in the value of community and fellowship between businesses. She is a McDonald County native who never plans to leave, so she has some big plans! She once stated, “I look forward to the day where the County has developed into a community of small businesses as well as larger corporations.  I believe we need both types of business to be truly successful and sustainable.” For Tara, community is #1!
